"Jesus replied, 'Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.'”
John 3:3
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:16-18

I am grateful for the way God has transformed me from the dimension of time and brought me into His eternal kingdom. There was so much I didn’t understand when I started following Jesus, especially regarding the capability to see and observe what is happening in the spiritual realm. The power He gave me to be a witness of who He is and what He is doing enables me to perceive the difference between reality and illusion. The Lord has turned my world upside down and inside out. Watching the development and decline of projects, institutions, and events that are only temporal manifestations of human ingenuity make me realize the futility of living my life without Him. I pray that God will give me more discernment to distinguish the difference between the temporal and eternal.
