Greater Still!

 

A follower of Jesus has much to look forward to...a new day with new mercy, a future full of growth and joy and abundant living and an amazing eternal life where we will dwell with God! Wow, as the scriptures say:

“As it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

It's going to be so amazing that we can't measure it effectively by human standards:

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:12‬ ‭ESV‬‬

In our weekly Bible text we see this was the shortcoming of the Saducees: ‭‭Mark‬ ‭12:18-27‬ ‭ESV‬‬ http://bible.com/59/mrk.12.18-27.esv

These men tried to understand the heavenly awesomeness of the resurrection and eternal life but looked thru the lens of human reasoning. They needed to learn something that you and I can commit to learn and never forget - as good as we can possibly imagine, Heaven will be 'Greater Still'. 

The hope of the Jesus Disciple is an abundant life in the 'here and now' and an eternally perfect life in the 'there and then'. 

Today, set your mind on things above and don't fret about what you don't yet know. One day you will and it will be Greater Still!
