Week 45 Day 3
We walk by faith, not by sight!
exercising our faith
and not using our physical eyes alone
We have a better chance of getting
where we are going
if we believe that we will get there
We keep the risen Lord before us at all times
in him is the victory.
In the dead of winter--
trees stand bare
roots go deep for strength and sustenance
buds wrapped in protective cover
silent and unseen
promise of new life within
soon to be born anew
symbol of our faith
confident of God's abiding presence.
AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST
Take courage; live by faith, not by sight.
II Corinthians 5
1We know if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed,
we have a building from God, a house not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens. 2We groan, earnestly
desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from
heaven, 4that mortality may be swallowed up by life.
5He who has prepared us for this very thing is God,
who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
6So we are always confident, knowing that while we
are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
7We walk by faith, not by sight. 8We are confident, yes,
well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be
present with the Lord.
9Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or
absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 10We must all appear
before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may
receive the things done in the body, according to what
he has done, whether good or bad.
12We do not commend ourselves again to you, but give
you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have
an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in
heart. 13 If we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if
we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14The love of Christ
compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for
all, then all died; 15and He died for all, that those who
live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him
who died for them and rose again.
16From now on, we regard no one according to the
flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to
the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.
17 If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things
have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
18Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to
Himself through Jesus, and has given us the ministry of
reconciliation. 19That is, God was in Christ reconciling
the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to
them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were
pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be
reconciled to God. 21He made Him who knew no sin to be
sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God.
