Time for New Glasses

7 “That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:7

While reading an article the other day from a minister sharing God’s wonderful provisions of His grace, the Lord popped this phrase into my mind: it’s time for new glasses. I chuckled but I knew immediately what the Lord was talking about because I understood the natural concept. Let’s see how it applies in our spiritual lives. If the Lord may tell you it’s time for new glasses, you’ll know what to do.

For many years I didn’t need glasses because my eye sight was good; in fact 20/20. However, in my late 40’s I was having trouble reading the signs at the end of grocery aisles. I had to squint to see them better. I realized it was time to get some glasses, so I went for an eye exam. I mainly needed glasses for distance. I had no trouble seeing close up, but especially when driving, I needed a boost to clearly see objects and signs in the distance ahead of me. Maybe you’ve had a similar situation.

Just as you might need glasses to help your physical eyesight, you also need spiritual glasses to see God’s transforming truth that will transform your life. Paul Ellis put it this way: “If you read the whole Bible through the lens of the Cross, you will find redemption and life. If you read the written word to discover the Living Word, it will set you free.”

When you read God’s Word through the finished work of Jesus you get a whole new perspective on everything that God has for you. When you see that God’s grace not only gives you favor but acceptance, love, abundant blessings, provisions, healing, you can’t help but have greater spiritual eyesight. The more you continue to focus on Jesus the more you’ll see the reality of His Word and power working in your life.

Don’t settle for the norm of what you’ve previously known. There’s so much more and you find it through the lens of the Cross. It’s definitely time for new glasses so you can see the manifold blessings of God’s love and grace for you.
