The Cause and Cure of Blindness | Week 4

Isaiah 42:16-20

Blindness is a powerful metaphor of our spiritual condition. It is impenetrable darkness. It is ignorance. It is hardness of heart. And it cannot be cured by oneself or by one’s teachers. It can only be cured by a miraculous touch from Jesus: “The man they call Jesus… put mud on my eyes, then I washed, (and) now I see,” (John 9:11, 15 NRSV). This sermon will introduce the fourth level of the Seeing Pyramid – seeing what others don’t – and show how the assumptions of our present culture keep us blind to the reality of things unseen. We’ll discover what it means to see the unseen and how this miracle affects every area of our lives.

The trouble is not in what is written, but in how we read it. Those who see clearly read it differently and they consistently obey what they read.
