We’re accustomed to the natural;
As far as the eye can see,
And trust in the tangible
Where proof and evidence is seen.
But there are moral implications
That extend into the spiritual realm,
Along with root causes that cannot be seen
That can leave us overwhelmed.
If earth was our only reality
Then Christ we would not need,
Because if the afterlife did not exist
There’d be no Savior to intercede.
God’s put eternity in our heart
Whether we realise this or not,
But we’re distracted to discover the truth
When too absorbed with our lot.
Fear is debilitating
And will take full control and reign,
Where our common sense is numbed
And where logic does not remain.
All forms of negativity
Have a deep root within,
And stem from the powers of darkness
Associated with our sin.
It’s the invisible attributes
That gain power in our lives,
But we prefer to claim another source
When reality is disguised.
There’s more than meets the eye
And we’d be pleasantly surprised,
When we discover the deeper meaning;
When scales fall from our eyes.
When we have true vision
Of what the Father does desire,
We were once blind but now we see
As our heart and soul is rewired.
Jesus came to set us free
With a heavy price to pay:
He’s the epitome of love and grace
And forever this remains.
God’s vision was pure and clear
As He saw our eternity,
And sacrificed His dear Son
So eternal life we see.
