2 Corinthians 4:18

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”


“TEMPORARY” This world and our life in it is temporary. Most of you were born in the 21st century, post-2000. I look at just how much technology has changed since 2000. In 2000, we connected to the Internet through a phone dial-up via a desktop computer that took several minutes just to load a web page. You would dial-up your connection and walk away from the computer for 5 or 10 minutes until your web browser loaded on your computer. That was not that long ago, and  I know, hard for you to imagine when you have a phone in your hand today that allows you to instantly watch a movie or a TV show. That was unimaginable in 2000.

As believers, we have to recognize that the things of this world are temporary and are going to change. The challenges you deal with today will not be the challenges you will deal with five years from now. God is our constant. He never changes. His truths are still the truths today as they were 2,000 years ago. His love for us is as strong today as it was when we were born and will remain as strong in the future. I hope as you reflect on these words that you recognize that our focus and that our confidence cannot be found in the temporary things of the world.
