Heavenly Vision 3/21/20

“For with Thee is the fountain of life; in Thy light we see light.” (Psalm 36:9)

Perhaps you have seen some of those video clips where someone who is color blind is given a pair of “color blind” glasses. These glasses make the colors they see more accurate and vivid. The responses are often dramatic and emotional. The colors were always there, but they couldn’t be seen until these new glasses were put on.

In II Corinthians 4:4, Paul tells us that there are those who cannot see, cannot understand the gospel. He explains that “the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” Those who are lost are spiritually blind.

For those who believe, God “has shone in our hearts to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” (verse 6) God shines His light in us by the Holy Spirit. As the fountain of life, He gives us physical life, and through Christ He gives us spiritual life. His light floods our hearts, our minds, our spirits, and in His light, we see light.

Color blindness is not cured. The improvement only takes place while the special glasses are worn. Spiritual blindness is cured through Christ’s death on the cross, His resurrection, and our regeneration by the Holy Spirit. When we are led into God’s light, we are able to see spiritual truth; we are able to understand the gospel; we are able to have fellowship with God. There is no other cure, no other option. We must step out of the darkness and into His light. It is only in God’s light that we can see light. Amen.
