Blinded

27 08 2011

   Today we went out to lunch with our family, and I was sitting facing the sunlit restaurant entrance. My eyes squinted as a looked at the pale blue sky through the entrance. The brightness flooded into the restaurant. I realized that when patrons walked through the entrance door, all I could see was their silhouette against the bright sky. I couldn’t see the peoples faces at all because of the bright backdrop of light behind them. The brightness almost blinded my eyes, and I began to hear the Holy Spirit teaching me about Christ as light. I realized this: If we see Christ in believers, we will be blinded by the Light in them, who is Christ, and will see Him and His glory. We will see Christ’s awesome characteristics Heb 12:2 MKJV looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, …. We will not be able to see all of their faults and shortcomings. When we take our eyes off Christ in them and focus on their fleshly bodies, we will become critical and judgemental. This is why Paul said that we are to know no one by the flesh. 2 Cor 5:16

Joh 1:4 MKJV In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

Joh 1:9 MKJV He was the true Light; He enlightens every man coming into the world.

Joh 8:12 MKJV Then Jesus spoke again to them, saying, I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

2Co 4:6 MKJV For it is God who said, “Out of darkness Light shall shine;” who shone in our hearts to give the brightness of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The reason people are so judgemental and critical is because they do not know that Christ lives in them and in every other believer. The believer has been crucified with Christ, and they no longer live. It is Christ living in them and through them. If they knew and understood this amazing fact, they would look for Christ in others too.

Mat 13:43 MKJV Then the righteous shall shine out like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

Let His light shine through you and blind the world with His glory….……
