How is your vision?

Eyeglasses and eye chart
How good is your vision?  Today, I am going to the eye doctor for my yearly eye exam.  I never used to go every year until I realized how bad my eyes were getting.  I am far-sighted, which means that I can see distances great, but get anything up close and it is bad news.  It is really amazing how I did not really realize this until I got glasses for the first time.  Suddenly, I could see things up close so much better.  It made life so much better.  I was not straining to see and my eyes could relax.
As you begin to rely on your glasses, it becomes really apparent how bad your eyesight is when you forget your glasses.  Suddenly everything that you used to be able to see clearly, is now blurry and unreadable.  Once again I can feel old age creeping up on me.
This week the sermon is on being involved in the process of people coming to trust Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  Jesus uses a very interesting person to start the process and to show the disciples what it means to be involved in that process.  That person is the woman at the well.  She went from being ostracized, to being evangelized to being an evangelist who brought the entire town out to see Jesus.  The disciples missed it all and Jesus had to tell them to look up and see what is happening around them.
There is a saying that says hindsight is 20/20.  It means that everything that has happened, when we evaluate it we can see exactly where we did what was right and what was wrong.  One day that will happen on a cosmic scale as we stand before Jesus and give an account for what we have done.  While I don’t have perfect vision in my physical eyes, I am praying that God will give me perfect vision as I look around and see the potential harvest that is here in Fillmore County.
I am hoping that you will be able to be a part of our service on Sunday.  It begins at 9:30 am at Geneva Assembly of God Family Worship Center.  Have a great weekend!
