“From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way. So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” (II Corinthians 5:16-17) Depending on when you get this, Annual Conference is either already over or almost so. In both Memphis and Tennessee, we have been encouraged by the Rev. Junius Dotson to “see all the people.” It’s all too easy, isn’t it, to see people as interruptions rather than the beloved children of God who they really are. Paul is reminding the Corinthians of something similar here. Because we have met Christ, because he has given us new eyes for seeing, we really can no longer look on people in any way other than how he sees them. That even includes how we view ourselves. Having surrendered our poor vision for Jesus’ perfect sight we have to look on all the way he does: with love and compassion. That’s a real challenge at times, isn’t it? Today ask Christ for his vision and behold the miracle of interruptions transforming into neighbors. Begin to “see all the people” the way our Lord does.
