I got a real demonstration of what Paul meant in 2 Corinthians 4:18 when he said ‘the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal’ . I got home one day to meet my house in darkness. Turns out I had an electric fault. All my appliances were dead. Then I called in an electrician who fixed the fault and turned the power back on and light flooded my house and every appliance that was dead in my house started working. It was clear to me that though I could see those devices, they were not as real as the electricity that I could not see, for without the invisible electric the visible electronics would not work. Without the Invisible God, this visible reality would not work. All my electronic devices would grow old and be thrown away, but electricity does not grow old. Brethren, don’t let material things that you see deceive you. God is real though you can’t see Him.
