Bible Study

Amazing Grace….

I wanted to step away for just a day to write a different blog. God speaks to us if we listen and spend with him. As I’ve been spending more time on my Jesus Genealogy blog, I feel closer to God than I have in the last few months. Why you ask? No reason really…to be honest I haven’t gone to church every Sunday but I do my Bible Studies and listen to various sermons online. Including those of my own Pastor when they’re available. I actually enjoy my church family a lot. I’ve been working a lot to catch up on bills etc. (enough excuses).

We all tend to get to busy, caught up in the day to day grind, we become blind. Blind to what’s around us, and what should take precedence over something else. We all hear the pun, “God didn’t forget to wake you up this morning”…Can you imagine? God wakes up and St. Peter comes and says so and so is here. God’s like, crap I had them down for 50 years from now. “Oh well, send em in I must’ve forgot to set their alarm”…. sounds dumb doesn’t it! Why? Because God puts us first everyday. There’s no reminder needed. No alarm clock. No excuses.

I remembered the story in the Book of John where Jesus healed the man born blind. When they questioned the man he said, “all I know is I was blind but now I can see”. Amazing Grace!!!

2 Corinthians 5:7, one of my favorite verses by the way is, “we walk by faith, not by sight”. So what does the blind man and this have in common?

This blind man didn’t know Jesus before he walked up and cared enough to give him the time of day. Jesus told the people the man didn’t do anything to cause his blindness. Jesus helped him see in more than just a physical sense. I’m sure it affected the man emotionally and spiritually too. We all can have that same feeling of being blind and able to see by listening and reading God’s word. Trust in him with all that you do. This is walking in faith…knowing and trusting that God’s already there to help.

Father, I pray that we all can learn to rely and trust in you more. Lord I pray that when I give something to you to handle that I learn not to take it back. I will walk by faith and not by sight. When I became saved, I was no longer blind. Now I can see. Amen
