Spiritual Blindness



Spiritual Blindness. Jesus, when delivering the sermon on the Mount, described it this way. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:22-23 (NKJV)



Spiritual Blindness


What is blindness that is spiritual? Jesus, when delivering the sermon on the Mount, described it this way.


But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!


Isaiah 59:10 gives this description.


We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes; we stumble at noonday as at twilight; we are as dead men in desolate places.



However, there is a marked difference between physical blindness and  blindness that is spiritual. A blind person knows that they are blind; people who are spiritually blind do not know that they are blind. They walk about in a world of their own making with their own rules not knowing that they are stumbling about as dead men in desolate places.



There is only one reality, and that reality is defined by the Word of God. Through Christ we do not have to grope about in darkness.


1 John 1: 7 says, But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.



Do you seek the wisdom of the world? Remember that without Christ the people of the world are walking about spiritually blind. The truth they perceive is not reality.



Pray today that God would shine His grace upon you this day, and that you would walk with the true Light of the World, Jesus Christ and not in the blindness of the people of the world.
