They are open…maybe!

Have you ever wondered if your were blind??

Not literally…but Spiritually.

Is GOD showing us things, and we’re just too blind to see them?

Are our eyes closed? Are our minds closed?

The answer to all of these questions is sometimes YES!

Don’t worry…we’re not alone!!!

“And when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a ghost, and cried out; for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He talked with them and said to them, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”” {Mark 6:49-50 NKJV}

The disciples’ were blind as well. They saw what their minds feared seeing. Where do you think the thought of a ghost came from? They had just spent the day with JESUS, feeding 1,000s of people, and the first thing that comes to their mind is a ghost????

 

What about John the Baptist? When JESUS came to him, to be baptized, John didn’t recognize HIM. Oh..he knew what HIS name was; Jesus and John were cousins. But John didn’t know Who HE really was:

 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.{John 1:32-34 KJV}

 

In both of these instances, the followers of JESUS did not recognize HIM until something physical happened. The disciples heard HIM speak—John saw the Spirit descending upon HIM.

I think the answer to our blindness comes from observing what HIS followers did.

Look!

Listen!

As my fellowship friend said: “…when Jesus spoke, they had no doubt.”

I’m going to carefully watch for GOD. I’m going listen for JESUS, without fear!

I’m going to start living life with my eyes…wide OPEN!

 

Gaining strength though our fellowship.

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” {1 John 1:3 KJV}

One thought on “Open your eyes…

  1. Our living world is steeped in value timed within our hands, the moon insights the stars in mind in universal plans. In revolution with such journeys turned upon our faith, in evolution to such facts we term within our space. We haunt dominion within price we tune within our grasp, so handed to eternal hosts within our written paths.
