In the center of all things unseen is One who holds all things together, Jesus Christ. Thus, to see clearly is to see Him as he is, and not as we imagine him to be. It is to see the end of all things before they are upon us and to fall on our faces in worship of him whose face has changed (Luke 9:29), the First, the Last and the Living One (Rev. 1:17-18).
Every day we are immersed in things that are urgent, daily and temporary. The unintended consequence is to be near-sighted, to neglect the important and the eternal. Yet it has always been those who thought the most of the next world that did the most in this one. What Christians believe and what we hope for is not an escape, or a mirage, but a real and present kingdom. This sermon will introduce the Seeing Pyramid and focus on the level 3 – “those who haven’t seen and believe anyway” (John 20:29, NLT) – affirming the hope that everything we’ve believed, yet still haven’t seen, is real and it’s closer than we think.
