The ability to see is a wonderful gift God gave us to enhance our lives. As great as it is to have physical eyesight, however, having spiritual vision is even more important. While being physically blind makes life challenging, being spiritually blind is a tragedy. If we’ve been born again, yet still try to live by the Law of Moses, we’re spiritually blind.
The absence of spiritual vision causes us to drift through life aimlessly. It blinds us to the grace God offers and causes us to struggle to accomplish things Jesus has already accomplished; where there’s no vision, the people perish. Religion actually prevents us from knowing God through a personal, life-saving relationship with Jesus. This relationship prevents God’s warning, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” from coming to pass in our lives.
Setting aside religion and embracing a relationship with Christ opens our eyes to God’s goodness. The experience Paul had when he met Jesus on the road to Damascus illustrates this. Paul strictly adhered to the law until Jesus gave him a mission and the spiritual vision he needed to accomplish it. Paul’s assignment was to open the people’s eyes and turn them from darkness to light.
Jesus gave Paul the job of sharing the gospel of God’s unearned, undeserved favor. The revelation knowledge Paul received from knowing Jesus inspired him to confess that the ministry he’d received from the Lord was to testify of the Gospel of Grace. Paul became a new man with perfect spiritual vision.
If the gospel is hidden, it’s hidden to those who are lost. The god of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe, lest the glorious gospel of Christ shine on them. As believers, we need to make sure we’re not spiritually blind as well. Our ability to share Christ with others changes lives.
Lord, Your Son came to remove the veil the Law of Moses put over our spiritual eyes. He did this so we can see You as You are, and have the close, personal relationship with You that You’ve always wanted. Thank You for that. In Jesus’ name, amen.
