Don't Miss It

"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him." - 1 Corinthians 2:9

1 Corinthians 2;9  ''“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''

    When we say 'I wouldn't have missed it for the world', we are expressing how much something means to us.  We are stating that it is a priority above everything else.  We would forgo any other pull at our hearts to be there.
     Is that how you feel about heaven?  Is it important enough to you to pass on worldly pleasures that are temporary for the eternal gain?  First, you have to believe in a heaven that is promised but yet unseen at the moment.  Secondly, you have to make heaven a goal that is worth obtaining in your life.  Thirdly, you must trust in His promises beyond your own understanding.
     This world is not our home, we are just passing through.  If you've never been to Antartica, how do you know it is for real?  You've been told and believe it to be true.  Heaven, without pictures, is the same way.  We've been told about it in the Bible, but we have to trust in our belief in it to not miss it for this world.
     John 3;16-17 ''For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.''
