Perfect Vision

Posted May 18, 2022
Perfect Vision

How is your eyesight? I had to get a new pair of eyeglasses last week. My vision was not as “sharp” as I would have liked it to be. I caught myself squinting to try and see things better. I went for an eye exam and sure enough, the eye doctor told me that I needed a new prescription. When I picked up my new glasses everything looked crystal clear again! It was awesome! The bad news is, that it won’t take too long before I will notice that things aren’t as sharp as they once were and I will need to get another set of glasses.

Having bad eyesight is part of our sinful human nature. I am not simply talking about physical sight; I am talking about our poor spiritual eyesight. Paul writes: “Now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face” (1 Corinthians 13:12). In our limited sinful nature, we can’t’ always “see" how God has blessed us now, or “see” what God has in store for our future.

In the sinful world that we live in, our vision of God’s reign is clouded by trials and suffering. Our vision of God is blurred by sin and can’t “see” God perfectly. In the book of Revelation, John received a “sneak peek” into heaven and saw —in living color and high definition—the day when all the people of God from every nation, tribe, people, and language will be gathered around the throne of God in the presence of Jesus. On that day our cry will be, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:10). Until then, “we walk by faith, not by sight” under the care of Jesus, our Good Shepherd (2 Corinthians 5:7).
