I would like to ask you to put on a verse of Scripture as you would put on a pair of glasses.
If you were to use this one verse of Scripture as your looking glass, I believe you would see the world in a whole new way.
This one verse will be like a telescope to see that which is far off and it will be like a microscope to see the small details that surround us.
This one verse of Scripture will bring to light every motive and action of yourself and the people who surround you.
If you really want to see the world for what it is I am asking you to view it through this one passage of Scripture.
Here’s the verse: Galatians 5:24 says, “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.”
Don’t be surprised if your first response to seeing the world through this Scripture is to fall before a holy God and say, “Father forgive me for I knew no what I was doing.”
And then don’t be surprised if you are compelled to help others see the truth also.
Our world has been blinded by the god of this age far too long. It’s time we see with a clear view what is happening all around us.
Have you nailed the passions and desires of your sinful nature to Christ’s cross and killed them?
It’s time to look in the mirror through your new glasses.
Once you recover from the shock then you will be able to see the world in a whole new way.
