Seeing Yourself iN Christ (SYNC-ing) is a day at a time process. End your day with one or more of these questions.
What did I do to make sure this whole day did not go by without thinking of Christ's return even once?
(Thank God for whatever reminder worked)
Where did I see Christ's glory dawning today in me or around me? Where did darkness lift? What did Christ do or inspire me to do?
(Thank God for evidence of his approach.)
Did anyone mention Christ's return today? Did I get a chance to mention it? Did I share the hope it gives me?
(Thank God for any mentions or opportunities.)
On a scale of 10, how lit up was my face today? Where was I reflecting Christ's glory?
(Repent if the number is low, and turn your attention back to the dawn of his glory.)
Did I slip into making any comments that sounded hopeless about the world or about my own life? (If so, repent and refocus on Christ's return. Let it define your outlook and your words.)
Bottom line: Is there more vision and hope in the world now than there would be if I had not lived today the way I lived it?
(If the answer is yes, then heaven's transforming power is coming to earth, just as Jesus said it is. Like high clouds at dawn, we are reflecting the sunlight down to earth to those who cannot see the sun above the horizon yet.)
Should I keep saying, "We see his glory dawning" even if I don't see it? Isn't that just a lame version of auto-suggestion?
Keep saying it, and keep realizing that it is going to happen on its own, not because you said it long enough to talk yourself into it.
