This is Better Than We First Thought

Posted on June 2, 2013 at 5:15 PM

God carried out His eternal purpose through Christ Jesus our Lord. Jesus died, rose again, and brought the Kingdom to earth. It’s not a matter of God having to do more, but rather, us appreciating what He has already accomplished. Many prayers are prayed with the idea that unless the Lord does something new we’re either in trouble or bored, but could it be we are asking for things that are already here and already relevant? I think so. Someone may think, I Corinthians 2:9 says “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,” and then assume that this refers to sometime in the future or even in heaven after we die. However, this scripture is followed by verse 10 which says, “these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. That’s amazing, these things are already ours and now available for us to enjoy. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Isn’t that reality? Yes, it is. And since we are born again, it’s our inheritance to see the Kingdom and enter the Kingdom in all of its fulness. This is better than we first thought.
