Devotion 12-16-23 for we walk by faith, not by sight— 2 Corinthians 5:7. Do you long for heaven? This verse is found in a group of verses where the Apostle Paul expresses his desire to be "clothed" with his heavenly body. He yearns for that new body and that close proximity to God. We walk in this present world, living here, but also knowing that, as Jesus followers, our real home and permanent dwelling is with God. We walk by faith, hoping that this is true. Our eyes see this crumbling world and we become discouraged. But our spiritual eyes, eyes that begin to function after we are saved, tell us a different reality. We live here, but we are in Christ and with Christ. We live here, but our life is hid with God. We live here, but here is not our destination. We walk by faith in Jesus, the Son of God, who, because of His deep love, became human, died human, and arose, returning to God so that we might live forever with Him! We walk by faith, eyes set far ahead, in heavenly places. 2 Corinthians 5:9 says, "Therefore, we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to God." Verse 14 states, "For the love of Christ controls us..." and verse 15 says, "and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf." We walk by faith. Even this faith is a gift from God. God has provided all we need to believe, submit, and walk in Him. He is our source. He is our life. He is our love. He is our God. We walk by faith, on Earth, until God releases us, and we reside with God in heaven. We walk by faith.
