However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him.

1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV

An online article on the Mars Development District website focuses on what is in store for Canada in the future. It says, “Genomics and other breakthrough health care technologies will reduce mortality, improve quality of life and increase life expectancy within the next two decades. Centennial birthdays will become commonplace as genomic medicine makes it possible to detect, prevent and treat diseases before they happen. Regenerative medicine will revolutionize organ transplantation, while wearable devices such as implanted microchips and brain-computer interfaces will become ubiquitous.”

I stood by the bed of a friend of mine a few months ago, just days before he passed into eternity. He had battled cancer for a while, and he hadn’t been able to eat any solid food in about two weeks. We spoke about what lay ahead for him – he loved the Lord and he closed his eyes as I read what the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 2:9: “However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ – the things God has prepared for those who love him.” He smiled as I read this verse. He was trying to imagine, but as this verse reminds us, it is impossible. There is nothing in this world that compares to what eternity holds for those who love Jesus. All we know is that God is preparing something more beautiful than anything we have ever experienced for those who are in Christ. He offers that to you, today, if you will reach out to Jesus in faith.

These have been words from the heart.
