Christ still makes the blind to see. Do you question that? Jesus spoke obvious things when He walked here on earth, yet
most of those listening took them in a non-spiritual way, and so what He said seemed to be lies. For example, He told them
plainly that those who accepted Him would never see death. And immediately, they pointed out that Abraham was dead, and the
prophets. (John 8:51-53, 11:26) But Christ was talking about our souls. Our bodies are like cars we ride in. But when we trade
the old car away, our lives don’t end. We live on.
In the following chapter (John 9), Jesus heals a man who had been blind since birth. And even then, most didn’t believe
him, and even said that he looked like the blind beggar we’ve seen for years, but we aren’t sure. Even after much
questioning, and even asking his parents, they didn’t want to believe.
Folks are like that still. They can read the Bible, but their interpretation is what happens to suit them personally. But
when a person really is converted, his eyes are opened. He sees the world in a new, different light, and has passed from blindness
to seeing Jesus as the Christ. Suddenly, he or she understands Christ’s words and even the Bible becomes clearer. It’s
a clear case of the blind gaining new sight. And although our sight surely is our most prized possession, this new thing…suddenly
being able to see the sins of the world as they really are…is better than human sight itself.
Today…now…is a good time to ask Christ to enlighten you. Give your life to Him and you’ll have the treasure
you’ve been searching for.
