The Blindness of Death!

Blindness is a very difficult burden to bear. It can be healed only by miracle and in a few cases by doctors. Some have to be blind all their lives. When one is healed, what a cause for rejoicing and gratitude. Jesus did this for a man in Mark 8:22-26: “And He cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto Him, and besought Him to touch him. And He took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when He had spit on his eyes, and put His hands upon him, He asked him if he saw ought. And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. After that He put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. And He sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.” When that man awoke that morning, he probably had no idea what he would experience that day. That night, he was likely so thrilled and excited that He found sleep evasive. It was a tremendous miracle! There is a blindness far worse than this man’s. We are born with it and it can only be healed by miracle. It is the blindness of being dead, spiritually. Without the miracle of Spiritual rebirth, it will never be healed in time or eternity! The Spirit of God shines some light into our spiritual blindness. He gives a hint of the possibility of spiritual healing, if we respond positively to the amount of light that He has given. Those who receive Jesus as Savior and Lord are cured and they have overwhelming joy and gratefulness. I’m sure that this is what Eugene M. Bartlett had in mind when he penned the second stanza of, “Victory in Jesus.” This is how he put it: “I heard about His healing, of His cleansing pow’r revealing, how He made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see; and then I cried, “Dear Jesus, come and heal my broken spirit,” and somehow Jesus came and brought to me the victory.” Selah! When we respond to the light and heed His Word and yield to His control, His life enters our inner being and more and more light is given through His Holy Word.  Ron
