Today’s Scripture Selection: First Corinthians 13:12
“Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
Vision is an important topic in the Scriptures.
We read about God’s looking out on what He has created and calling it good.
We read about the great patriarchs and matriarchs; and the spiritual vision that allowed them to step out in faith.
We read about Moses and how he had the vision to follow God’s direction each step of the way from slavery to freedom.
We read about the prophets who had the unique vision to see what God had planned for His people, even when they were wildly disobedient.
We read about the way Christ came and opened the eyes of the blind – healing them and giving them new vision – and new hope.
We read about the first disciples who had the vision to follow Him.
We read of the early church and the vision that allowed them to see past persecution and death.
We read about the amazing vision of the future revealed in the Book of Revelation.
From start to finish – Genesis to Revelation – it’s all about seeing what God wants us to see.
And in a world that is too often blind – we come to realize how important it is to have open eyes, open hearts, and open spirits.
Prayer: Loving God, help me to have the vision I need to follow faithfully. AMEN.
