”So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:18
The luster of a new car is lost after a while. The same holds true for a new house or any inanimate object. Why is that? They are just things. Yes, things that we work hard to attain and some things that we need to live; however, there is grave danger in believing those “things” make us who we are or add to our spiritual wellbeing.
I love to look at new cars, new houses, the latest technological gadget, but I keep in mind that they will never bring me the spiritual satisfaction that only God can. There is a feeling of accomplishment and pride that comes when I attain something new mixed with the reality that it will serve a purpose for a season and eventually succumb to moths or rust (Matthew 6:19).
So, are things bad? No, God provides us with things to enjoy and live this earthly life. He wants us to be blessed, but blessed with balance. Lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life are the three categories of sin that we are all susceptible to. If the proper perspective in regards to things is not applied we will fall prey to one of if not all those categories. I spend a lot of time in the gym working out staying in shape. Our body is a temple for the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19) after all so we are required to take care of it. Yet in the grand scheme of things our body is a thing also. A wonderfully designed and made thing, but it gets old, sick, and eventually dies.
Proper perspective is the remedy to keep our lives balanced, but proper perspective is not a trait that we all have. When the purpose for life is not realized proper perspective is nothing but a pipe dream. We are here for God’s glory (1 Corinthians 10:31) and our lives should reflect that. This includes putting into proper perspective the things we have or goals we have achieved within the grand scheme of God getting the glory.
No man or woman will ever take things with them when they die (Mark 8:36), but what was done for God with those things prior to death will last. I am often reminded of this because I often think about dying, but not in a morbid sense. Ecclesiastes 7:4 (NLT) reads, “A wise person thinks a lot about death, while a fool thinks only about have a good time.” I challenge you to ponder that for a moment. If all a person thinks about is “having a good time” the bible says they are a fool. I’m sure you are familiar with abbreviated expression YOLO which means “You Only Live Once”. It’s mainly utilized when people are going to do something they have never done before and it’s an “adventure” or it holds some kind of risk. The expression is very true from a worldly physical view; however, the actual truth of the matter is that we all live forever and we all have one opportunity in the life we currently live to receive eternal life with God or apart from Him. So, if we only live once on this physical earth with the bodies we now possess, let’s live for God and make the most of the time, gifts, talents, and things He has bestowed upon us for His glory.

Jason Wright and The Master's Touch Announces the Release of New Single "Show Yourself Again" feat. Crystal Aikin
ROCHESTER, NY - Jason Wright and The Master’s Touch is excited to announce the release of their new single “Show Yourself Again” featuring the incomparable voice of Crystal Aikin. After a four year hiatus, Jason Wright and The Master’s Touch are back on the scene with a powerful worship hit that is sure to shift the atmosphere in any church or arena.
You can now purchase the new single on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon!
Jason coins the release of “Show Yourself Again” by saying:
“Show Yourself Again” is a powerful song that is sure to change the lives of each listener. It was produced by the musically talented and long-time friend of mine Rufus McGee, Jr. A special aspect of this single is that it was written by Coye Duncan, a member of The Master’s Touch that I have watched grow musically and spiritually in the great anointing that I always knew that God had on his life. My spirit was compelled to birth this song because of my strong desire to see miracles back in the church like we used to see in the days of old. We serve a never-changing God, so if He did it before, surely He is able to do it again! I am excited for the new single and looking forward to the worldwide impact it is sure to make on each person that hears it.
ABOUT JASON WRIGHT AND THE MASTER’S TOUCH:
Jason Wright is no stranger to Gospel Music and the Gospel Music Industry, as he was a long time member of Stellar Award Winning choir Ricky Dillard & New G. Jason is the co-leader of the hit song “Take Me Back” in which he recorded with Dillard & New G on their 6th album.

Jason has traveled the world including Germany, Italy, and England spreading the Gospel through music.
The thing that Jason considers to be one of his greatest accomplishments is being the founder and director of The Master’s Touch in the summer of 2005. The ”Touch” has since shared the stage with several major artists including tours with Pop Star Josh Groban and Country Star Trace Adkins. In 2007 Jason & M.T. were named “Best Choir” by Dr. Dorinda Clark-Cole’s Singer’s & Musician’s Conference, and has since traveled across the country with their message of hope. Jason & M.T. released their Debut project entitled Victorious Believer in May 2011 on the Canadian based Redeeming Music label, which earned them a Rhythm of Gospel Award for their song “Sinner Man” featuring Lillian Lloyd. With the success of the debut album Jason and the choir have been invited to be a part of several major events including Hezekiah Walker’s Choir Fest during Stellar Award Weekend, and made an appearance on BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel Show with Jason’s mentor the legendary RICKY DILLARD.
