Does your lens need to be repaired? Or does it need to be replaced? In Ephesians 1:18 Paul writes this, I pray that the eyes of your heart, that is, your spiritual lens, may be enlightened, it may be illuminated so it can make you see something better, so that you will know these things. You will know what is the hope of His calling, that you will know what are the riches of glory of His inheritance in the saints. Your lens is not only supposed to make you see something bigger, it is meant to make you see something more majestic. That you will know what is the surpassing greatness of His power towards us who believe. And that word ‘know’ there means ‘to know by perception.’ It is a new lens. All of us can accept that on our journey with God, we are all growing up into all things in Christ. Right? That’s Scriptural. How many of us really understand that each of those things will involve a lens correction? Each of those things that we are growing up into will include a new perception, otherwise you can’t go there; a new mindset, otherwise you can’t stay there; and a new language.
