An Ignorant Man

An ignorant man looks at a beautiful painting and sees a painting. An insightful man will look at the same painting and see the genius of the painter's hand. When someone becomes a Christian, he no longer looks at the beauty of sunrise and merely sees a sunrise. He sees the genius of the creative hand of Almighty God. The eyes of his understanding are enlightened.(Ephesians 1:18) The entire creation is the canvas of the Creator. He is born again, like a man born blind who suddenly receives his sight. He realizes that Heaven is real, and then it strikes him that Hell is also real. From that moment, he not only sees the beauty of God's creation. He looks past it ... into eternity. He now has a divine mandate: to urgently and passionately seek and save the lost. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
