Sermon Illustration

Check this out… It’s the winner of the 2008 Cannes film festival for short story films.

I’m thinking of the story at the well in Bethsaida, or the man Bartimaeus… Blindness comes in many forms. Even those of us who are walking in Jesus have amazing “blind spots” – don’t we??

Jesus had God’s perspective and saw with the spiritual eyes of the heart. Where other people saw blindness, Jesus saw people who knew it was “a beautiful day” but that they “could not see it.”

Paul said,

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. [Ephesians 1:17-19a]

Praying for open eyes and an open heart…
