Walk by Faith, Not by Sight

Dear Friends,

            Michigan State was in possession of the ball on the UCLA 31-yard line, the score was 14 to 14, and only 7 seconds remained in the game.  Dave Kaiser was sent in to kick the field goal for Michigan.  The ball was snapped, and Kaiser kicked it towards the end zone.  Every face on the field was turned towards the goalposts to see if it would count… Every face except Kaiser’s! The kicker immediately made an about-face and looked to the ref. The football scored, the ref’s arms went up to signal a field goal, and Michigan won the game.  But later the coach asked Kaiser why he didn’t watch the ball. “I couldn’t see it. I forgot my contact lenses at the hotel, so I had to watch the officials to know if the kick was good or not. Coach, I couldn’t even see the goalposts!”

            As believers…

We walk by faith and not by sight.

We face the opposite direction of most others.

We keep our eyes on Jesus to know if something’s good or not.

We depend on spiritual training to live right even tho’ we can’t see the goal.
