Bible Chat: Matthew 20-23

Time to share your thoughts on the reading this week, or just pop in to say you’re reading along with us in the comments!

Here’s a thought I had this week:

Matthew 20:33 “Lord, let our eyes be opened.”

I’m thinking that’s the most important prayer a person can pray. Our blindness overwhelms us and we have no idea there’s a need to see, the dark feels normal… we’ve never known it any other way. But like these blind men in chapter 20 who had been told of the richness brought to a life because of sight, we hear that we are stumbling around in the spiritually dark and there’s a bright new world of true understanding to be had. Those who realize this beg to see it and there’s only one Person they can ask to make it so. Jesus.

Have you asked that your eyes be opened? Spiritually are you a Pharisee? When you open your Bible does life get put in a box? When you are blind obedience gets misplaced. It is pride and self inflation that blinds us to the simple truth of Jesus. He needs to remove the veil to that whole new world.

Be constantly asking, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.”
