Oh Baby! Here’s What’s It’s Like to See Clearly for the First Time

Do you need a sermon illustration? Look no further!

This little baby needs glasses, but doesn’t necessarily want to wear them. I don’t blame her. However, you can see that spark in her little eyes when she realizes she can see and the glasses help her.

How often do we resist that which will help us because we don’t want to be inconvenienced or uncomfortable?

When we let go and let Him do His thing His way, we can see much more clearly. There is eternal freedom in earthly discomfort. Don’t resist the hand that helps you and holds you close. The more open-hearted we are, the more freely we receive the blessings and lessons from the One who knows us fully.

Do you remember what it was like to see clearly for the first time? We open our hearts wide to the realities of heaven on earth. We breathe deep and take the risk of removing the blinders from our eyes, ears and hearts. We trust the One who gives us vision to see as He sees and to walk brave the path of life.The shackles fall off and we realize how close the Father was all along.

Sometimes we need a little dirt and holy spit to see. Sometimes we need glasses gently, but firmly placed on our faces. Do whatever it takes to see holy and wholly. Wrestle for blessings and for vision like Jacob. Open your heart to mysteries revealed in the depths of His soul. Come as you are to receive His presence unmasked, unafraid and face on.

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
1 Corinthians 13:12
