Live By Faith, Not By Sight (II Corinthians 5:7‪)‬ What Christians Should Know

    • Christianity

The Christian is saved by faith and then lives by faith, which is distinguished from the life of sight. Of course, the life of “sight” is not limited to literal eyesight but refers to what is natural and earthly. Sight is a gift the Lord has provided to all human beings regardless of their election. Sight is not therefore to be rejected, but a man of faith understands that his decisive trust is not in an earthly gift. By contrast, natural men are content to live a life of sight without God. They live like practical atheists and ultimately trust what they think, experience, sense or feel. Indeed, they may have faith, but that faith is in something natural: their sight. In contrast, the Christian lives by his faith in Christ.In this episode, learn three practical applications of what it means to live by faith in distinction to living by sight.
