"Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him" (Deuteronomy 13:4)
When the wonder of regeneration has taken place in our lives, then comes the lifetime of preparation with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
God has told us that heaven and the glories of the heavenly kingdom are more than humans can ever dream or imagine. It will be neither an exhibition of the commonplace nor a democracy for the spiritually mediocre.
Why should we try to be detractors of God's gracious and rewarding plan of discipleship? God has high plans for all of His redeemed ones. It is inherent in His infinite being that His motives are love and goodness. His plans for us come out of His eternal and creative wisdom and power.
Beyond that is His knowledge and regard for the astonishing potential that lies resident in human nature, long asleep in sin but awakened by the Holy Spirit in regeneration.
Redemption puts God where He belongs - exalted to the throne - and man where he belongs - down in the dust - in order that God may raise man to the throne.
