Seeing People Through the Eyes of Grace

“From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view [lit., ‘according to the flesh’ = from a frame of reference that opposes God]” (2 Corinthians 5:16). Those in Christ see differently. They see the people around them differently, as those for whom Christ died, not as outsiders to be marginalized, opponents to be debated, or enemies to be defeated. This passages connects well with my message yesterday on the Splendid Samaritan.
