For those who love the Lord [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed], what eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for them. This is what 1 Corinthians 2:9 speaks about. The believer in Jesus can rest in peace and joy, but also know they have a hope and a future.
Today we look at how to be at peace in Christ by not being anxious for anything. Knowing your Heavenly Father is key in order to be able to trust in Him in every circumstance, in everything in your day. Know that He is for you and not against you. Be set free from all worry and anxiety so that you can be secure in the love and peace of God in Christ.

The first of two programs looking at Luke 16:19-31, regarding the rich man and the destitute Lazarus. On earth Lazarus was at the gate of the rich man, begging for anything that may drop from the man's table. After both died (in the physical sense), the rich man and Lazarus switched positions.
Do you find yourself comparing yourself to a person spoken of the Old Covenant/Testament, or are you fully aware of your identity in Christ that He bought with His blood of the New Covenant? While there are still important principles for us to learn from in the Old Testament, profound blessings such as the ability for a soul to decide to receive Christ Jesus within their own temple, by way of the new birth, must be understood. All comprehension of the Word of God must therefore be seen through the lens of the Cross.
This Easter program we celebrate the tremendous sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, who became the Ransom for Many according to Matthew 20:28 (AMPC), so that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him (John 3:17, AMPC).
