Do you take your eyesight, for granted? Even if you wear strong corrective lenses, when your contacts are in, or your glasses are on, do you ever take for granted the simple fact that you can see?
Because some people can’t. Whether from birth, or due to some sort of accident or catastrophe, some people can’t see. And like it or not, that’s a huge red flag.
When someone’s body doesn’t work as it’s supposed to it reminds us that none of our bodies work like they’re supposed to. No matter how well our bodies work now, one day they’ll stop.
Why is that? God certainly didn’t create bodies to die. So why will our bodies eventually stop working? It’s because of a deeper problem. God tells us in Ezekiel 18 “The soul who sins is the one who will die.” We die because of sin.
On our own, we’re so saturated with sin we don’t even realize we’re sinful. And even if we’re aware that some things we do, are sinful, we can’t see the consequences of that sin, because from birth we’re spiritually blind.
The good news is Jesus can work miracles! He even has the power to give sight to the blind! This Sunday at Living Shepherd we’ll see Jesus restore the sight of a man born blind, and that’s not all! We’ll even see Jesus restore the sight of the spiritually blind!
Blessings on the rest of your week!
