The Sunday evening lesson for January 1, 2021.
Part of the Paradoxes of the Bible series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Sight is a marvelous thing. To be able to see and behold the beauty of all God has made in our physical universe is something that many of us take for granted. But there is another kind of sight that is very important for the believer, one that enables them to persevere in all of life’s circumstances and to glorify God. It is the ability to see the unseen (2 Kings 6:15-17: Heb. 11:27). When we read about Elisha and Moses, we wonder, “Can I see what they saw?” If so, how, and what does this mean for us in our walk with the Lord?

2 Kings 6:15–17 (Listen)
15 When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
Hebrews 11:27 (Listen)
27 By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible.
