Tony Cooke, The Now & the Not Yet

“What we do in life echoes in eternity”
-what God has done in eternity should echo in our lives

Key Scriptures
-1 Timothy 4:8
-1 Corinthians 13:9-10, 12-13

-Heaven is not for perfect people, Heaven is for forgiven people
-God loves me just the way I am but He loves me too much to let me stay this way.
-I’m not where I shall be, but I’m not where I’m used to be.

***God’s plan***
1) we are in the world, but not of it.
-not isolated, but insulated.
2) the best for us is yet to come
-2 Timothy 3:1-5
-Lower your expectations of earth, it isn’t Heaven, don’t expect it to be. (Max Lucado)
3) we are to seek things above
-Colossians 3:1-4
-1 John 2:15
-if you love the world the love of the Father is not in you.
-don’t love your past more than you love Gods plan for your future.
4) we are here to influence the here and the now
-2 Corinthians 5:20
-so heavenly minded, we are no earthly good

walking the Christian walk isn’t all about “what God can do for me”. Why don’t we boast about how we loved someone so hard that it made us feel uncomfortable. or when God dared to challenge us & push outside of our comfort zone in order to save someone else. where we went the extra mile to pray for someone who we didn’t even know. or the work that is required of us in the Kingdom where we gain NOTHING. yes this is a blessed life, but glitz and glamour is not the prize, & it never was.
