Pastor Princeton Waters, The African Representative Of Grace Beyond Border international,Jos, Nigeria has said that for we walk by faith, not by sight.
Waters stated this during sunday sermon.
He also quoted the Bible , and explaining “For we walk by faith, not by sight:” – 2 Corinthians 5:7
How can we not walk by sight? Didn’t our mothers teach us to “look both ways”, and “watch where you are going”?
It is true that living in this physical world is greatly helped by sight, but our ability to see with our eyes is not as helpful when it comes to the spiritual realities of living in Christ.
If we can’t see it, how do we know its real?
If we can’t see a change in their life, then how do we know they are saved?
The answer is found in believing the words of God rightly divided. The preaching of the cross is the proof of salvation, but no one has seen the cross Jesus died on. There is nothing to see in the empty tomb, but it is the evidence of the offer of eternal life.
People Who Saw
Without faith in God’s revealed words, people are left only with what they can see.
This is why so many religious people desire to see miracles, physical evidences, and signs from God. They think if they do not see these things then God is not real.
They want God to manifest himself … again. I say ‘again’ because the Bible records the many times God already manifested himself and men rejected them all.
God manifest in the flesh walked the planet, and they killed him.
Thousands saw the miracles that he did, and then later yelled, “crucify him”.
The disciples touched him, ate with him, and heard words from his mouth, and yet they fled when he was arrested (Matt 26:56).
Thomas would not believe until he saw and touched the resurrected Lord. When he was able to touch him the Lord responded:
“Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” – John 20:29
Paul saw visions, received revelations, and wrought signs, but Christ did not heal him so that he could learn to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Cor 12:9).
