LORD, Let me receive my sight
a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. He heard Jesus passing by and
cried out saying, “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me!”.
“The Lord asked what he could do for him. The beggar replied, “Lord, let me
receive my sight!”. Thereupon the Lord Jesus healed
him of his blindness.
The eye is one of the most
important organs. The Lord in His sermon on the Mount
said, “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole
body will be full of light; but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will
be of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the
darkness!” (Mt 6:22—23). Satan has no delight in men’s salvation. He will blind
the minds of the people to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the
glory of Christ so that they will not be able to accept the truth and to obtain
eternal life (2 Cor 4:3—4). The Jews whose minds were
blinded by the devil were no better than the blind person in Jericho.
They were unable to accept the salvation of the Lord. They persecuted the Lord.
Therefore the Lord said, “Nor judgement
I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who
see may become blind” (Jn ). The Lord also upbraided the Jews for not believing
John the Baptist, saying, “Why then did you go out? To see a man clothed in a soil raiment? Behold, those who wear soft raiment are in
the kings’ houses. Why then did you go out? to see a
prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet”
(Mt- 11:8—9). What do you come to see when you go to church? Scholars?
Philosophers? They are in the universities. So you come to church for truth and
salvation? Yes, true tabernacle of God set up not by man but by God (Heb 8:2;
“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things
out of thy laws” ( Lk ; Ps 119:18).
