Eyes of the HeartYour Inheritancev.11notice me!DOXAYour Inheritancev.11Heb. 2:5 And furthermore, the future world we are talking about will not be controlled by angels. 6 For somewhere in the Scriptures it says, What is man that you should think of him, and the son of man that you should care for him? 7 For a little while you made him lower than the angels, and you crowned him with glory and honor. 8 You gave him authority over all things.But we have not yet seen all of this happen. 9 What we do see is Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels and now is crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death for us. Yes, by Gods grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone in all the world. 10 And it was only right that Godwho made everything and for whom everything was madeshould bring his many children into glory. Through the suffering of Jesus, God made him a perfect leader, one fit to bring them into their salvation.11 So now Jesus and the ones he rescues have the same Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.Your Inheritancev.111Cor 2:7 No, we speak of Gods secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 However, as it is written: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love himTheres NO DANGER of expecting TOO MUCH!!36Your Inheritancev.11Rom 8:14 those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are Gods children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirsheirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.Things unlawful to speakTheres NO DANGER of expecting TOO MUCH!!37Your Inheritancev.11THUS, PAUL COULD SAY:2Cor 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.Theres NO DANGER of expecting TOO MUCH!!38Your InheritanceKing Davids StoryA teenager!Theres NO DANGER of expecting TOO MUCH!!39
