Each time I think about 1 Corinthians 2:9, it blows my mind. No one can comprehend with the natural mind what God has prepared for you. You don’t have to be a Bishop to partake of this promise. Neither is it an exclusive reserve for Pastors only nor those that come to Church. No. It is for those that love Him.
There are things that you cannot comprehend with your natural senses, but God has secured them in the depth of His love. Those resources are discovered in the realm of God called LOVE.
In Matthew 22:36-40, they came to ask Jesus what the greatest commandment was. In other words, on which commandment do the rest of the commandments rest? Jesus replied, love God and love your fellow human being. When you do this, you have covered everything. The strength of the other commandments lies on love.
It is very sad how casual we take the issue of love in the church today. Some of us do not even understand what love is. If you love someone, you will not murmur or talk evil against the person. I don’t understand why you will not tell your brother or sister that he or she has offended you; rather you go behind the person to say all manner of things. Is it not better you tell the person to his face and settle the matter once and for all?
The unfortunate thing is that this is the issue holding a lot of Christians back today. 1 Corinthians 13 tells us that you may sound “spiritual” and still be wasting your time. You may be paying your tithe, giving to the poor, cleaning the church etc.; yet if you have no love, you are simply wasting your time.
Child of God, you need to step up. Leave those mundane things that end up slowing you down. God has so much in store for you that you cannot afford to lie down and waste your life. Only the best is good enough for you. God has greater things in store for you that eyes have not seen yet. I pray for you today that it shall be well with you. See you at the top.
