GIVE US EYES TO SEE | Begins January 26, 2020
“There is none so blind as the one who will not see.”
And there is no blindness as destructive to the soul of a person than spiritual blindness. Throughout Jesus ministry, those who were most resistant to confronting their own blindness were the wealthiest, most religious, and most educated. Many of them had lost their sense of wonder and thankfulness, and had hardened hearts towards both God and neighbor.
Starting next Sunday, we will spend four weeks in Jesus’s story about the Rich Man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31). Our aim in this series is to address the blind spots that we, as American Christians, often allow to go unchecked. Our prayer will be that Jesus might say about us, as He said about His first disciples: “But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear” (Matthew 13:16).
Pastor Eric has selected the book Something Needs to Change by David Platt as our suggested reading for this series. Books can be purchased in our Library for $13.
