Everlasting vs Temporal

2 Corinthians 4:18 (AMP)

“So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.”

In this world we live in it is easy to focus on what looks good to our senses. We trust what we see to be who they are or what it is but the experience of a born again person in spiritual matters tells us that what we see is not always what is.

The Holy Spirit takes us deeper into spiritual things that our mind or intellect can not understand or know. The Holy Spirit teaches us the things of God.

Have you ever thought about something or problem and then asked the Holy Spirit to help you get it or understand it. Then have what puzzled your mind and spirit become clear to you in an amazing way. These are the “unseen” things that only the Holy Spirit can help us discern.

Bjc, 4.5.17
