Federation Connection February 2013

a publication of Lakeside Lutheran High School Volume 2: Issue 6

“We live by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). We use English imprecisely by frequently interchanging synonyms, words with similar - but minutely different meanings. The words joyful, elated, and glad have similar meanings, but differing connotations. Joyful suggests strong happiness whereas glad means general satisfaction.  Elated may have the strongest meaning of the three: excitement! To express the proper meaning, the correct word must be used. Two synonyms that Christians use in their lives of faith are sight and vision. Sight is an everyday sense used to recognize and react. Vision, on the other hand, is a special ability to imagine outcomes or visualize the future. Faith can include vision. Do we use these words correctly? The Apostle Paul tells us, “We live by faith, not by sight.” Every day, Christians face life’s problems due to sin. At such times, sight perceives a miserable condition with no hope or escape. Thank God that he gives us faith, saving faith. God’s gift of grace worked through his Means of Grace allows us to rise by faith above the sight of this sinful world’s problems with a vision that sees the glories of heaven. Sin’s troubles are temporary. They will disappear. By faith, Christians know and firmly believe that their “light and momentary troubles are achieving for [them] an eternal glory that far outweighs” this world’s sorrows (2 Corinthians 4:17). Through Christ, “we live by faith, not by sight.” Mr. Jim Grasby is principal of Lakeside Lutheran High School; his column is featured in every Federation Connection.
