"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 4:18
"We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ."
1 John 1:3

It is hard for me to realize that everything I can observe with my senses is only temporary while the things I can’t see are eternal. I believe in God although I have never seen Him. The only form of Him I have available to me is the testimony of men who were eye witnesses and saw Jesus Christ before and after He was crucified. I believe their relationship with Him is real even though I have never personally seen them. For over fifty years I have been following Jesus and His teaching. Today they are more real to me than the memories I have of my own past which seem to be nothing more than an illusion. When I die, my recollections will all disappear with me and the only thing that will remain is what I have written about my perceptions of what occurred. One thing I know is certain and for this I am eternally grateful. When I started following Jesus my life radically changed and the fellowship I have today with Him is the most important thing in my life.
