Invisible and Impossible

Maxwell posits that success comes from a common goal or dream. In fact he has a laminated card he keeps nearby that helps him dream of great things and accomplishments. His ideas are primarily for business but also have some application in our Christian life, especially this one:

“Sense the invisible so you can accomplish the impossible.”

That is really an idea that comes straight from the Scriptures. Colossians 3:1-2 says it twice: “Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on the things above, not on t he things that are on the earth.”

A similar thought is found in Romans 12:2 where Paul warns and encourages: “Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Finally, consider Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” In other words, faith is the invisible which, with obedience, produces acceptance from God. “And without faith, it is impossible to please Him…” (Hebrews 11:6)

Only by knowing the invisible God (Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17) can we accomplish what is otherwise impossible – the salvation of our souls!
