For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7 NKJV)

To see is to believe. Thomas wanted to first see and touch the physical body of the resurrected Christ before believing that He came back from the dead and appeared to the other Apostles. Christ came to him and asked him to touch His wounds and said to him, “Thomas stop doubting and believe.” Thomas exclaimed the great truth about Christ, “My Lord and my God!” A blind man came to Jesus asking to be healed him. Jesus asked him, “Do you want to see?” He said, “Yes.” Jesus told Him, “Believe and you shall see. Do you believe?” He said, “Yes, Lord.” The blind man was able to see. “To believe is to see” rather than “To see is to believe.” That is how to walk in faith and not by sight. Faith is the substance of things hoped for. It is the certainty of things that are still to come. We do not see Paradise but we are sure that we will get there. Faith is like having a title deed of a faraway land which you do not see now but have the assurance that you own it. Two things exist, the visible and invisible. God is spirit. We do not see Him now as did the early Disciples because He came in the flesh, died, resurrected and went back to heaven. Our faith assures us He exists. The evidences are clear. The heavens declare His glory. We feel Him, experience Him and He is present in our lives. What the physical eyes cannot see, the eyes of our soul can see through faith. Moreover, not everything you see is true. The world that we see presents things that are deceptive. Worldly things do not last. They fade and are destined to perish including happiness, treasures, knowledge etc. There is only one truth who is Christ. Believe in Him and you shall see Him in His great glory. See Him through faith and enjoy true peace, happiness and everlasting life.
