Seeing Clearly – August 13

When I am swimming in the ocean I often dive under the water and open my eyes so I can see my surroundings. I like to know if there are any jellyfish in my path or if there is anything interesting fish around me. The problem is though when I open my eyes everything is not crystal clear. It is blurry. Now when I take a diving mask with me and put it on and open my eyes under water everything becomes crystal clear and I do not miss a thing. In a similar way the Bible makes it clear for us to be able to see our standing before God apart from Jesus Christ. The first half of Romans 6:23 reads, “For the wages of sin is death”. That reveals to us our desperate situation speaking of future separation from God. Thankfully the rest of the verse reveals a way of escape, “but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
