“I was Blind but Now I See”
Many of us know someone who is blind.
It is difficult to think what that must be like.
We complain when we cannot clearly see things.
Yet, there are many who do not see anything.
This is physical blindness.
However, what about Spiritual blindness?
Please read the following verses.
13 They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind.
14 Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man’s eyes was a Sabbath.
15 Therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. “He put mud on my eyes,” the man replied, “and I washed, and now I see.”
16 Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath.”
But others asked, “How can a sinner do such miraculous signs?” So they were divided.
17 Finally they turned again to the blind man, “What have you to say about him? It was your eyes he opened.”
The man replied, “He is a prophet.”
18 The Jews still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents.
19 “Is this your son?” they asked. “Is this the one you say was born blind? How is it that now he can see?”
20 “We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind.
21 But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know. Ask him. He is of age; he will speak for himself.”
There are many more Spiritually blind than physically blind.
This Spiritual blindness is very dangerous.
Unless that Lord opens our Spiritual eyes with His Spirit, we are headed to eternal doom.
May your Spiritual eyes be open.
May you be crystal clear in seeing and understanding His Word.
As believers, I pray we can say; Once I was blind, but now I can see. The light of the world is Jesus.
