Seeing God

October 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

Someone writes, “Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera… it helps us see differently.”  That certainly distinguishes the tenth leper from the other nine (Luke 17:11-19).  Because, “when he saw he was healed,” he went back to praise God (17:15).  And it certainly is the challenge of Christian living in the ordinary routines of everyday life.  To see God in all things.  The real journey of faith consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes in the current landscapes, because the healing power of God violates the ordinary in order to enact the extraordinary within the ordinary.  Martin Luther said worship is the tenth leper returning.  That is true worship extends beyond the walls of the church sanctuary.
