Why do we fail to launch? Or, to ask it another way, why do we fail to initiate our God-given mission? One reason might be because we succumbed to spiritual nearsightedness, the inability to focus on that which is distant because your focus is always on that which is closest. This condition can be debilitating as evidenced by the life story of Israel’s first king, Saul. How did Saul suffer from spiritual nearsightedness and why did it prevent him from launching?
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”
