Colors

Color blind, 66-year old William Reed sees colors for the first time. After putting on the special glasses, he loses it. His reaction is priceless. There are lots of hidden metaphors here somewhere.



I'm reminded by 1 John 3:2.

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

As we behold Christ finally, we shall be transformed (2 Corinthians 3:18).

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.

I'm excited for that day. Meanwhile this world remains a dark, troubled place, but God is sovereign: in control of governments (Proverbs 21:1), climates (Job 37:12-13), and everything else that happens in this side of eternity.

  1. Aww, so cute. I wonder how those glasses work?
    It's not the same but I'm kinda reminded of Wayne Watson's song, "Rose Colored Glasses" about how God looks at us because of what His Son did. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KW7BpHhxVMI
