An optometrist in British Columbia has invented a surgically implantable bionic lens that could give patients perfect vision and make glasses, contact lenses, and laser surgery obsolete. Replacing your eye lens with this lens would take about eight minutes and your eyesight would not only improve at once, it would be three times better than 20/20 vision. Approval for the lens is still about two years away.
The Bible says we have need of a faith lens as well. This lens helps us to see things with spiritual eyes that our physical eyes don’t see. The heroes of faith in Hebrews 11 were able to live by faith because they could see a city of faith that cannot be seen by physical eyes. —Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell

Hebrews 11:9-10 (NASB) “By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise; (10) for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.”
