I. INTRODUCTION

A. TWO MEN WERE IN PRISON. THEY WERE IN
THE SAME CELL WITH NO LIGHT EXCEPT A
TINY WINDOW THREE FEET ABOVE EYE
LEVEL. BOTH PRISONERS SPENT A GREAT
DEAL OF TIME LOOKING AT THAT WINDOW.
ONE OF THE TWO SAW ONLY THE BARS,
UGLY REMINDERS OF REALITY. FROM DAY
TO DAY HE BECAME INCREASINGLY
DISCOURAGED, BITTER, ANGRY, AND
HOPELESS. BY CONTRAST, THE OTHER
PRISONER LOOKED THROUGH THE WINDOW

FOUND WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING
FOR ALL MY LIFE.

4. PEOPLE TODAY ARE LOOKING IN ALL
THE WRONG PLACES. THE JOURNEY
ENDS IN CHRIST.

E. THERE ARE THREE CHARACTERISTICS OF
PERFECT VISION THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO
