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

We serve a RIGHT NOW God

Heaven is not the goal! Bring Heaven down to Earth! Many Christians believe that we are required to suffer and struggle through this life, and don’t worry because you’ll finally have peace and happiness in Heaven. Not true! You can have peace, happiness, and God’s will for your life NOW. Adapt this new attitude this week, & claim what’s yours NOW! There are seasons when God has us to wait and strengthens our patience and endurance through tests and trials but as mighty as a God we serve, believe that He has set a mighty path before you to enjoy, conquer, & be fulfilled NOW!
