There are some people who are not believers because they will not believe in what they cannot see. They only believe by seeing. However, there are many things that we choose to believe in in this life that we cannot see. We cannot see the wind, yet we feel it and know that it is there. We cannot see emotions, but we know that they are real because we see the evidence and effects of them in ourselves and others. We believe in magnetism because we can see what it does, but we cannot see it. Yet, some of us have trouble even believing the spiritual that we cannot see.
2 Corinthians 5:7-8 tells us, “For we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.” When we choose to believe in the spiritual, we are choosing to see the invisible and believe the invisible. We put our hope in the unseen, knowing that it is very real. We not only believe, but are confident in who God is and what He has done in our lives. We have our sights set on eternity and our future heavenly bodies instead of what is temporary and earthly.
So what about you? What do you choose to believe? Do you have confidence in who Christ is and what He did on the cross? Do you look forward to eternity or are you stuck in the temporary? God has great things in store for those who choose to follow Him.
