Considerations ~ The Blind and Seeing Views of God

This morning it occurred to me that the people who speak as authorities regarding God’s apparent non-existence are describing their blindness as though it were sight. They may make enough noise to convince other people who have never seen God that there is no God to see. However, those who have heard Jesus passing by, and called out for him to have mercy on their blind condition, now see him quite well, and could never let a blind man tell him that their Big Brother does not exist.  

The good news of the gospel includes the fact that Jesus was sent to proclaim "recovering of sight to the blind" (Luke 4:18). Christmas celebrates his coming into the world to do this. The greatest way to celebrate is not in buying gifts for him or others, but to receive the gift that he has given.
