March 18, 2015 – 2 Corinthians 5:6-8

2Corinthians4-18aSo 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. 2 Corinthians 4:18Acknowledging the existence of only the things we can see with our eyes, limits our spiritual sight and insight. Only things with substance we can hold or kick would then exist.For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. Romans 1:20.  Those things that we do not see…exist.  Not only the wind, but the God’s eternal power and divine nature.  We see the effects of the wind, and in time every knee will bow before our Lord God and His Eternal Power.Hardened hearts toward God blinds us and causes us not to hear when He calls or see His Hand in our lives.  His ways are not our ways, his thoughts are not our thoughts.  The more we trust him, the more our faith grows…and the more understanding we have of His Love.  The Love that covers all and builds a foundation of understanding that keeps our heart in tune with His incredible Song of Hope.This love and faith an hope prepares us to walk by faith and not by sight and helps us to say with Apostle Paul, I prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.   Death is simply a step over the threshold of eternal life where our spirit is finally Home where angels sing – Worthy, Worthy is His Name.Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord— for we walk by faith, not by sight— we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
