We are living in the world changed so fast. But we have to remembers there is the world unchanging and eternal. That world is visible only through the eyes of faith. Stephen saw the throne of God but the people stoning him did not. Risen Lord was seen to disciples but not to others. On the road to Damascus Paul saw the glory of the Lord but accompanies not. So Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is…certain of what we do not see.” Faith will make us see things invisible. So Christians are called as visionaries (Acts 2:17). We are to called to do the ministry of piety and mercy according to John Wesley.
Our children are back to school. New sports season is back. We are facing our challenge and hope for the future.
