Believing the Invisible

posted Oct 9, 2015, 6:12 AM by Beautiful Zion

If you could be invisible for 24 hours what type of impact would you have on society?  Invisible is defined as incapable of being seen, or inaccessible to view.  There are many things that are invisible but are required in life; oxygen, gravity, and God. Because you cannot physically see them does not mean they do not exist.  Jesus said, “Thomas because you have seen me you have believed, blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed”. Do you believe what you cannot see?

I have heard people say I believe it when I see it.  One person you need to believe before you see him is Jesus, because when you see him it will be too late.  In Colossians 1:15-16, Paul writes to the church concerning the preeminence of Christ.  He educates us that Christ is the image of the invisible God. In essence, God is invisible, but Jesus has revealed Him to us.  Jesus said, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father, do you believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves.”  When we look all around we can see God in His most prized creation of man, in nature, the atmosphere, and the knowledge he has given man to create all the wonders of this world.  This world reveals the existence, power, and wisdom of God; but nature cannot reveal His essences.      

Do you believe what you cannot see? “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” Faith does not require you to see but believe.  Did you witness the crucifixion or the resurrection of Jesus? Yet you believe!  One day every eye will see Him and everybody will have their chance to stand before God and see Him face to face.  Prepare now!
