Consider Heaven - 1 Cor 2:9

No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Cor 2:9 RSV)
Think about that for a minute. Consider what some of the Sci-Fi writers have imagined. Consider the vastness of the universe. Consider the incomprehensible subatomic structure of matter where new particles are discovered or theorized almost every day. Consider the way a delicate flower blooms from a hard green stem. Consider the mysteries of chains that fell from Peter’s hands and the iron gate that opened by itself when an angel led him out of prison (Acts 12:6-11). Consider that our finite minds are limited and God’s is not. Our power is extremely puny but God’s has no limits. Consider what is awaiting us in heaven. Consider the shortness of our lives and the expanse of eternity. Consider what would be more important to grasp in this life than that which will last into eternity.
