Seeing God

Two pastors at the church in WF preached online during the lockdown. Both asked themselves the same question in a sermon: “Why don’t I see the miracles that Jesus promised we will see in our own lives.” One found – “Because I am disobedient to the commands of Christ”. The other concluded “We will never know”.

One answer gives you a handle one the problem. Owning your failures is the first step out of a meaningless and defeated life.

When the Bible talks of seeing God, it does not mean seeing God on the day of judgement – we will all have that encounter. It must therefore mean seeing him and seeing his love, his care, his power, his moving on our behalf in this life.

Heb 12: 14

Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal.
