Is Your Light Darkness?

No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a clay pot. A lamp is put on a lampstand, so everyone who comes into the house can see the light.  Your eyes are the lamp for your body. When your eyes are good, you have all the light you need. But when your eyes are bad, everything is dark.  So be sure your light isn't darkness.

Luke 11:33-35

Years ago I knew a girl who had been blind since birth. She was quite comfortable in her blindness and confessed that she really didn't want to see, because she knew that there were many temptations that would come with being able to see!  But her life was severely limited by her inability to see.

In a sense, every man is born blind.  We are blind to the things of God and for us the "darkness" of this world's wisdom is our light!   Men and women walk through this life never knowing that there is so much more to see because they have never turned to Jesus and received their "spiritual sight" from the Savior of all who will spend Eternity in Heaven!

How does a man who is born blind know that there is such a thing as sight? The answer to that question is simple and yet very profound. A blind man is gently guided through the darkness by someone who can see the obstacles in his way and helps him avoid them. He comes to know that being able to see is better than being blind!

If you have spiritual eyes because of the Blood of Jesus and His Power being present in your life, then instead of commanding the blind man to see, show him the way. Let him see by the life you live before him that you can see things that are in the dark to his eyes! Then he will ask you to show him how he can see like you do!

And when a man comes to Jesus, he sees that what he thought was light is really darkness.  And the light of Jesus causes him to see everything differently.

"Lord Jesus, may Your light fill my heart and mind so that my eyes will see everything around me as You see it! And may You be praised forever. Amen."
