When one receives prescription glasses, they are only helpful if the prescription is correct. If not, your ability to see will be limited. In the same way, if we are not viewing life through Jesus’ finished work, if we aren’t viewing life through the work of Jesus, namely his life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and imminent return,—and instead through our own “goodness” or politics, or power dynamics, or race, or any other variable, —we’ll lack the ability to see “God moments” in front of us.
We also won’t be properly equipped to handle the tragedies, mishaps, misfortunes, valleys, and storms of life, as they come at us; as we all know, we live in a post-Genesis 3 world, which means that it is hard to live life, no matter who you are - so how can we strive not necessarily to have a better life but rather to be better at life? We need a framework, a guide, a map, and a navigation if you will. This is what Christ provides and specifically, this is what the arrival of the King provides, for you and me.
