Wednesday, August 2, 2017 -Jesus


Just as many people did not recognize the blind man after he was healed by Jesus, it is the same way with us when we have a new life and a changed heart. A new life given by Christ is the one thing the world can not explain away. He will take our your heart of stone and place within you a heart of flesh. We see the world in a different way. We have a new purpose and calling and Jesus reveals to us the reality of our lives being used in service for others. Pointing everyone in our path toward the great love of Christ through our broken stories and the truth of the gospel changes everything for all of us. When we shine the light of Jesus, others will see the difference, just like those who knew the blind man. We look the same, but we are a different person when we are new in Christ. That is the power of Jesus in us and, in turn, God is glorified in all circumastances of our lives. The world sees Jesus, not us. 

Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory. Psalm 115:1


John 9:1-11, 2 Corinthians 4:5-13
