Google Earth on the computer gives a view from above. You can see your house, farm, Province, even the whole planet. But when God looks down from heaven, He sees much more. The Psalmist wrote “God looks down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there are any who seek God. Every one of them has turned aside…There is none who does good, no not one.” The New Testament agrees, stating, “There is none righteous, no not one.” But though that’s what God sees, He’s made a way to make us righteous in His eyes. When Jesus went to the cross, Paul explained, “He (the Father) has made Him (Christ) Who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” When God looks on real Christians, He sees them as righteous, because of what Christ has done.
