The Blind Man and the Seeing Blind

Did you come to Jesus as a blind beggar or as a religious do-gooder? You have to come to Him as a blind-beggar – empty-handed – to receive sight and life in Him. We must see we are blind to receive true sight and life through Jesus the Christ…

God’s great and grand story captures not only my heart but also my imagination. So on occasion, I pull away from splicing and dicing beautiful narratives from God’s Word into 3 and 4 point sermons and instead utilize a dramatic first-person form of communication. Why color outside of the normal lines like this? Because I long for God’s people to be radically captured by the beauty and power of His Word, so that their hearts and lives are changed for His glory. In the video below I’m retelling the story of the man born blind…from his perspective.
