I saw a lot of April Fools Day pranks last week.
Some of them were really funny, and some of them were just, well, mean.
My favorite, however, came as a video press release from Google. It announced that Google was releasing a new product, “Actual Reality Glasses”.
The “product” was actually goggles with large clear plastic lenses.
The video showed people walking around with looks on their faces like, “Wow! Everything looks so real!”, and “I feel like I could just reach out and touch it!” One person says in awe, “I can hear everything perfectly”.
They weren’t virtual reality glasses, they were Actual Reality Glasses!
We actually get those when we surrender our hearts to Jesus. We can’t see things as they are until God reveals them to us. We can only see the appearance of things.
We can’t come to God, or have faith, or be saved by ourselves.
Seeing isn’t believing. Believing is a way of seeing.
Things only get real when we open our hearts to what God is doing, and follow Jesus.
That’s Actual Reality.
