THE STORY OF JESUS: Luke 18:35-43
“When all the people saw it, they also praised God.” (Luke 18:43)
This blind man wasn’t the only one whose eyes were opened.
The same group that tried to silence the blind man now see this healing.
They did not understand – could not see – that this was what Jesus was about.
Even after all this time with Jesus, they were still blind to who Jesus was.
The blind man on the other hand could see Jesus better than they did.
I often wonder whether many christians today are blind to who Jesus is.
We spend our time thinking and talking about Jesus, but we do not share His values.
We see Jesus as our Jesus, and make it hard for others to reach Him.
I talk about Jesus all the time, not because I think I see Him better.
For me it is because I sense that I don’t see Him, that I don’t get Him.
By immersing myself in Jesus, and not giving up, I feel like this blind man.
“Lord, I want to see You!”, is what I am eagerly pursuing.
And though its not immediate, I do feel that I am slowly seeing Him better.
May all our eyes be opened more to Jesus, and may we praise God as a result!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, I want to see You! Open my eyes to Who You are, that I may love and praise You more!
