20/20 VISION
By Pastor Dennis Felder
 
Whenever you take an eye exam, your goal is to be diagnosed with 20/20 vision.
 
Sometimes, we will need to wear glasses or have eye surgery to obtain 20/20 vision.
 
When we have 20/20 vision, it allows us to meet the standard establish by ophthalmologists to see clearly and correctly.

Well, I started thinking about this New Year we are about to enter – 2020
I am seeing this New Year as if it were a vision test.
The year 2020 has the same numerical readout of a perfect eye exam – 20/20.
The 20/20 test that I am referring to does not deal with physical eye sight, but spiritual eye sight.

As we enter into 2020, I want you to ask yourself one very important question:
Do I see what Jesus wants me to see?
 
Each and every year it is easy to become distracted in what we need to be focused on.
We have so much in this world that can easily pull us in multiple directions.
This tug-a-war in life can also cause us to neglect what is really important; our relationship and obedience to Christ.
So, I want to offer you a simple, but effective test that will assure you to have 20/20 vision in 2020. It’s only two basic steps:

First Step – To assure that your spiritual vision is 20/20, go for an eye exam. There is only one person who can administer such an eye exam and this is Jesus Himself who is referred to as the Great Physician (Mark 2:17).

Second Step – Keep your eyes focused on Jesus. In Hebrews 3:1, it reads, “Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.” (ISV).

So, as we ring in 2020, let’s make sure the first thing that we do is to have our spiritual eyes checked by Jesus.
 
Because in the end, when we see what Jesus sees, we can truly have a
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
