FOR WHAT IS SEEN IS TEMPORARY, BUT WHAT IS UNSEEN IS ETERNAL

2 CORINTHIANS 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

CAMBRIDGE BIBLE temporary, i.e. they last, and are intended to last, but a season.

MACLAREN'S EXPOSITION It is only by Him that man’s thoughts and desires are drawn to, and find themselves at home in, that tremendous thought of immortality. I know not how it may be with you, but I am not ashamed to confess that to me the idea of eternal continuance of my conscious being is an awful thought, rather depressing and bewildering than delighting and attractive. I, for my part, do not believe that men generally do grapple to their hearts, with any gratitude or joy, that solemn belief of immortal life unless they feel that it is life with, and in, and like, Jesus Christ. ‘To depart’ is dreary, and it is only when we can say ‘and to be with Christ’ that it becomes distinctly ‘far better.’ He is, if I may so say, at once telescope and star. By Him we see Him; we see, seeing Him, that the things that are unseen all cluster round Himself and become blessed.

ELLICOTT'S COMMENTARY Let us give our minds to the things which are eternal.

I could not make it another my day without my faith that better things are awaiting.  I have a peace in my heart.  Nobody wants to die, but assurance of everlasting life where we all have a choice to claim is the best news to share in these trying times.
