HEAVENLY PERSPECTIVE

READ:
2 Corinthians 4:16-18


While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
-2 Corinthians 4:18

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Genesis 41-42
Matthew 12:1-23

Fanny Crosby lost her sight as an infant. Yet, amazingly, she went on to become one of the most well-known lyricists of Christian hymns. During her long life, she wrote over 9,000 hymns. Among them are such ensuring favourites as “Blessed Assurance” and “To God be the Glory.”
Some people felt sorry for Fanny. A well-intentioned preacher told her, “I think it is a great pity that the Master did not give you sight when He showered so many other gifts upon you.” It sounds hard to believe, but she replied: “Do you know if at birth I had been able to make one petition, it would have been that I was born blind?...Because when I get to heaven, the first face that shall ever gladden my sight will be that of my Saviour.”
Fanny saw life with an eternal perspective. Our problems look different in light of eternity: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things whch are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:17-18).
All our trials dim when we remember that one glorious day we will see Jesus! – Dennis Fisher
Dear God, please help us to see this life from a heavenly perspective. Remind us that our trials, however difficult, will one day fade from view when we see You face to face.

The way we view eternity will affect the way we live in time.

WAIT FOR YOUR HARVEST II

I learnt a valuable lesson some years ago. When the crowd of participants at our monthly Holy Ghost service began to increase, I decided to select seven elders to help in the area of ministering to people. I gave each of them neckties that I used during previous ministrations. “Put on these neckties; they are...More
