Leviticus 1-3, Matthew 20
I always tear up at the instances of Jesus giving sight to others. I think of it literally, in terms of miraculous healing, but then also in terms of faith. My pastor always preaches about having faith eyes that guide us with vision of things unseen. I like to think that these examples of Jesus giving sight to the blind also applies to Jesus giving faith and faith eyes to those who are not believers. Isn’t that amazing? Praise the Lord for he allows us to view the world with our eyes of faith instead of just our mere earthly vision.
“Whoever wants to be great must be your servant. For the son of many did not come to be served but to serve.”
I loved this part as well!

May we also cry out “have mercy on me Son of David!” For our condition is much more helpless than theirs.
Everyone is here with purpose, to serve the Lord. Whether we were first or last to believe, all who believe are given the gift of eternal life. No specific aspect of our life makes us better, it’s our belief in God gives us everlasting life.
Praying for all of us, and Rebecca, that our faith would grow as we read the word. Rebecca- a great book on the topic is “The Case for Christ.”
This is a response to Rebecca Leek. I wasn’t able to reply to her directly. As Christians, we are called to believe and have faith that Jesus died for our sins, and that He was risen from the dead. Yes, it might be hard to grasp that He was risen from the dead, but remember He is the son of God who came down to earth in human form to intervene for us. John 20:29 says : “….blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” I encourage you to keep reading and may the Holy Spirit reveal things to you as you continue your reading.
