Daniel Braxton continues his series, “Identify” with “pt.3 – Who Are We?”. It’s important to know who we are and how much God loves us. It’s from that place that we can walk in confidence! The message series is in reference to Daniel’s upcoming book titled: “Identify” (via ABLAZE Youth Ministries)
“while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
II Corinthians 4:18 (NKJV)
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
II Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV)
Faith is not based on the way things “appear” to be, with natural sight. Faith is based on what God has said, and the spiritual vision and insight that comes through His Word! The scripture says that the things which are seen are temporary, meaning they are given to change and are not permanent. However, the things of the spirit, which are not seen with natural sight, are eternal. God does not want our focus to be on natural, temporary things, but rather on eternal, spiritual things.
Philippians 3:13-14 (NKJV) “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
