“From now on, then, we do not know anyone in a purely human way.… Everything is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.”
2 Corinthians 5:16a, 18 HCSB
Since I was 10 years old I’ve worn eyeglasses. If I’m not wearing corrective lenses I cannot see clearly to read, drive, or do much of anything. Likewise, because I am reconciled to God through Christ, He has given me the Holy Spirit who corrected my spiritual vision, giving me a new worldview. The woman who is CEO of her company, at the peak of health, and enjoying international travel is NOT on a mountaintop if she is spiritually shallow, distanced from the Savior. Similarly, the man with chronic illness, physical challenges, and financial struggles is NOT in a valley if it has drawn him into a rich, life-giving relationship with God, bringing emotional and spiritual healing. That rude child hasn’t had a meal in nearly 24 hours because there is no food at home. The girl in scant clothing never received any approval from her deadbeat dad, and now she’s looking for it wherever she can find it. The overachieving student still hasn’t achieved enough in his parents’ eyes.
Through what lens are you looking at the world? Do you need to ask God for a new pair of glasses?🚦
