I came across a great reading today on Daily Audio Bible (DAB), it can be found in John 9:1-41; pretty much Jesus heals a man who was born blind and the Pharisees find it hard to believe that the Son of Man had healed him, especially on a Sabbath day. They bring the man in to question him about his blindness and how he was healed and who healed him. After telling then repeatedly how he was healed and that he didn't know who healed him, the Pharisees still did not believe. Finally, they kick the man out of the temple. Jesus approaches the man and asks him if he believes in the Son of Man. The man asks, "show me who he is so that I may believe." Jesus replies, "You have already seen him, and he is the one who is talking with you now." The man then says, " I believe Lord!"
We sometimes tend to go through life blind without even knowing, claiming that our sight is perfect and we have no problems seeing what is in front of us. When truly indeed, we are spiritually blind and do not see that God and His work is right before our eyes.
I had gone through life assuming things were okay and never sought out the Lord in all I did. Figured things just happened by coincidence and tried to rationalize situations. Until one day, my sight was healed and I was able to see that the things that happened before me and the situations I went through and am going through are all part of God's work. Jesus Christ truly is the Light of the world and if it weren't for the Light, then I'd still be living life without true sight.
It is so awesome to find these types of stories in the Bible and be able to connect with them in so many ways. Truly the Word of God lives and I pray that we allow the Lord to continue shining the Light in our lives so that we may never be blind again!
God bless you all, let us continue planting our Seedz!!
Seedz of Faith is positive rap artist Michael "Cruzito" Cruz. The music is described as mellow and harmonious. Not really in it to become a mainstream artist, just in it to spread the Word through music.
