About All Things New Series

We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?

Devotional

2 Corinthians 4:18 AMP
“…we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.”

All that is truly REAL exists in the unseen. Paul was accustomed to seeing in that realm and understanding the invisible. He named it “deathless and everlasting.” How well he knew the “things unseen!”

Our problem is blindness to spiritual realities, because what is apparent seems so solid. But the reality – the genuine – is not visible and not provable. It is, however, knowable and see-able.
