He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped Him. John 9:38 ESV
The 38th verse shares the words and actions of a blind man who had received his sight by the works of Jesus. “Lord I believe” …. and he worshiped Him. The truth is that we were all blind before we experienced the work of Christ in our lives, maybe not physically but spiritually. The question is how do you worship the One who gave you spiritual sight? Let us imagine how this man who had received his sight physically might have worshiped. The first thing he might have done was to admire the creation of all this world’s beauty. The flowers that he could only smell before, now could be watched in awe. THe sound of the wind through leaves on the trees now could be seen dancing on the limbs. Perhaps his worship was the pleasure it brought God as observing a child discovering something for the first time. How do you worship? Has your Christina life become mundane, just a habit, or uneventful? You may need the cataracts of the mundane and habit to be removed from your spiritual eyes. Our focus needs to not be upon this world, but rather you many need to refocus on Christ. What did you experience when you first became a Christian? Perhaps the air you breathed seemed fresher, your rest of sleep sweeter, or the loads of life were lifted. Maybe the thoughts on your mind were mostly of Christ and how much brighter He made life. If you have lost this way of living and thinking, how do you regain this perspective and lifestyle?
Believe the promise: For this I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor heights, nor depth, nor anything else in creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-19 ESV
Believe the Truth: Greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 ESV
Believe Forgiveness: In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us. Ephesians 1:708 ESV
Let us believe and worship afresh the gift of spiritual sight that has been given to us! If we see spiritually, we know we have reason to do so.
