Living in time, looking at eternity

Re:Verse passage–2 Corinthians 4:7-18, 5:1-10 (day seven).  Good morning!  I am looking forward to seeing you in a few hours.  Our subject this morning will be our dual assignment from God–living in time AND eternity, keeping our eyes on UNSEEN THINGS even while we are surrounded by VISIBLE THINGS that seem very pressing.  It is a question of priority.  It is a matter of heart and focus.  Like Peter walking on the water, when we focus on earthly things we are dragged down by them.  Doesn’t your experience prove this proposition?  Mine does.  In contrast, when we focus on eternal things, we find strength.  (Even for the visible things.)  What a paradox! What an unexpected path forward!  “Our inner nature is being renewed day by day. . .as we look not at what is seen, but at what is unseen.” (2 Corinthians 4:16,18)  I am praying for you this morning and for myself that the Lord will speak this lesson deeply into our lives.  For His fame alone!
