Application for Nov 3-4, 2012 :: 2 Corinthians 4:17,18

===


2 Corinthians 4:17-18

For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

I imagine that some people hear this verse and say, “My afflictions are not ‘Light’ and ‘Momentary'”. They feel heavy and long and impossibly difficult. Some trials and times of suffering are extremely painful and rough.

But there is two sources of good news. The first is – the bad that you are experiencing, and it may be very bad, is nothing compared to the glory you’re headed for. The second is this – the bad that you are experiencing is actually making you ready for this glory.

How can this be? Well for one thing, the trial will make the glory feel more glorious.

So what should we do? Look to the eternal, the unseen, the glorious. Pay attention to those things.
