What precious thoughts are these in verses 7-18. Christians have found comfort and strength from them for 2,000 years. Life often has difficult and hard times. May you be sustained by what is unseen and eternal!
“For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
How much wonderful hope is in this passage!
We look to the things that are unseen, they are eternal!
This is so important that Paul repeats it,
“For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
The afflictions we suffer through our lives, the scars and burdens, the wounds we gain and may even bear through our lives – These are, praise God, transient.
And even those things are used by God to prepare an eternal weight of glory. Beyond all comparison!
What a God we have. What a wonderful God!
