The things God has prepared for those who love him

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him—

1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV

The things that the Lord has prepared for us on this earth and in His kingdom are far greater than we can ever imagine.  Jesus simply calls people to trust and follow Him.  He told us for anyone to follow Him they must deny themselves and pick up their cross.  For some throughout the centuries this has meant laying down their physical lives for the gospel.

But no matter the cost it will never compare with all that the Lord will pour out unto our lives in eternity.  We cannot fathom in our limited human understanding the glorious riches that await us in God’s kingdom.  From examining the death of Jesus on the cross it is evident that what He has prepared for us is far greater than anything we can imagine.

Each day upon this earth we will have challenges and trials along the way.  But God has a divine design for everything we will face during this life.  He is continually shaping and molding us into the image of who He is.  When we are born on this earth we are born into sin, but it is through Christ that we are set free.  The Lord is continually restoring our lives and it simply takes place as we trust and follow Him.
