“Fix our eyes on what is unseen” – The best part of any pirate movie is when the guy in the crow’s nest calls out “Land Ho!” The job of the crow’s nest? Constantly fix their eyes on what no one else can see. Stare at the horizon – into what at times would seem like nothingness – trusting that eventually a path would be revealed. We need a wakeup call so that we don’t get discouraged even if we can’t see the destination yet.

scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 4:13–5:1

Life in the present is transitory and cannot compare with the eternal home God has prepared for us. So we do not despair no matter what life might bring because we know that as God raised Jesus from the dead, God promises to bring us into eternal life.

13Just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with scripture—”I believed, and so I spoke”—we also believe, and so we speak, 14because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will bring us with you into his presence. 15Yes, everything is for your sake, so that grace, as it extends to more and more people, may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.

16So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. 17For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, 18because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.
5:1For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
