“DO YOU SEE HIM…”

“It was as if I was blind.  I must have heard many times that Jesus died for our sins, but I simply did not see it.  I was spiritually blind.  But when I understood the Cross, my eyes were opened.”  - Nicky Gumbel – Pastor HTB Anglican Church, London England and founder of The Alpha Course

The message of “Christ crucified” has varied responses; some simply cannot see it (often the very intelligent), others, especially very young children often have amazing understanding.  For all who “see it”, it is life changing:  ‘to us who are being saved it is the power of God’ (1 Corinthians 1: 18).

When Jesus asked some of the disciples, “What do you want me to do for you”, they asked for position.  When Jesus asked blind Bartimaeus, “What do you want me to do for you”, he answered, “I want to see”.  Jesus replies, “Go…your faith has healed you.”  Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus.  The word used for healed is the same Greed word as saved (sozo).

It is our hope and prayer that through this coming Holy Week and beyond, many of us would have our eyes “opened” and would see Jesus as He is…Do You See Him?
