Sit in the upper deck of the stadium for your favorite game, and wow, what a view! Take an airplane ride across the country, and wow, what a view! Venture up the mountainside roads in many of our national and state parks, and wow, what a view! Or, just ride the oval-shaped elevator cars to the top of the Arch in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, and wow, what a view you see here in my picture.
I would like to remind us each this week that the “view” from the Christian life is spectacular. When we have a problem, we look to God, and wow, what a view! When we struggle with daily schedules and responsibilities, we look for help from above, and wow, what a view! When we look heavenward and cry out for help and healing for someone who is desperately ill and hurting, wow, what a view we have!
You see, we Christians have a view that the rest of the world has not yet experienced. And wow, is it spectacular! But the greatest part is this — We haven’t even seen the greatest view yet! Just wait until we take our own trip heavenward. I look forward to that view.
We need to share the view with our world this week!
Just a thought.
