How’s Your View?
What you know about your future is more important than knowing your past.
Near the top of the hill above the city of Duluth was a motel-lounge-restaurant called Buena Vista (Spanish for “good view”.) Built in the 1950s it had a massive picture window for soaking in the sky, the city of Duluth and, of course, Lake Superior. (It was torn down in 2005.) Val and I used to take people up there and along Skyline Drive to give them some perspective before going down to the harbor and along the shore. The view was spectacular and it would set up expectations for the day.
But sometimes it was tempting to just stay there. So much to look at! Every once in a while there would be another ship. And certainly there were people and cars to watch down in the city. We could just keep ordering more food and make ourselves feel quite at home.
Our view from up there, however, was not meant to be our ending point but the beginning. What we saw in the distance was what we wanted to experience.
And believe me when I tell you that is just the tip of the iceberg. What you know about your future is more important than knowing your past. What you see ahead, guaranteed through Christ Jesus, alters your course here. It's what your life is intended for. In fact, did you know that when you pray “…thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” that’s what you’re praying for? That you/we live out God’s kingdom now on earth, just like in heaven?
May your view move you out of your comfortable seat and into what God has for you.
