This morning I did something I can’t say I’ve ever done before. Before flipping on the lamp, I put my head under the blanket to avoid the classic case of morning fried eyeballs. And as I sat under my quilt slowly pulling it away from my eyes I realized: I will be doing this my entire --because this is the Christian life. A life following Christ is spent in seeking and seeing more of the gloriously light of His truth and majestic splendor of His person and work.
Staying under the blanket all day is not an option. Likewise spiritually, staying under the blanket all life is not an option. God slowly peels back the blanket from our eyes. Each and every day as we seek Him in prayer and study His word, He is able to show more of Himself and the truth. Finally, one day, the blanket will be fully removed and in heaven we shall see Him as He is.
And that case of fried eyeballs I won’t be trying to avoid (1 John 3:2).
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
