2 Corinthians 4:18, 5:7 ESV

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.

For we walk by faith, not by sight.

 

Paul ended this portion of his second letter to the church in Corinth with foundational truths. By looking beyond their present circumstances, the faithful’s gaze could be on Jesus. 2 Corinthians 4:1, “Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.” Faithfully focused on the Father, their hearts would stand firm. Their faith was the bedrock on which they based their beliefs. Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” They needed to focus on Jesus. Hebrews 12:2, “Fixing our eyes on Jesus…” Jesus calls believers to walk by faith.

 

During dinner Monday night with my Small Group Girls, I opened a gift, a bracelet with these words, “Walk By Faith.” Adorning my wrist, it’s my daily reminder; He has called me to walk by faith. The last thirty-eight years with the help of many friends and family, is exactly what I’ve been doing. He doesn’t expect me to be perfect because I’m still a sinner needing a Savior. This amazing journey has been a step-by-step process with His help. I walk by faith because I’m His.

 

How does walking by faith change us?

 

Walking by faith,
