Eyes To See or Have We Lost Sight.

There once was a man who apparently at one time could see but had lost his sight.

Then they came to Jericho. And as He was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a large crowd, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the road. When he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" Many were sternly telling him to be quiet, but he kept crying out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!" And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him here." So they *called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage, stand up! He is calling for you." Throwing aside his cloak, he jumped up and came to Jesus. And answering him, Jesus said, "What do you want Me to do for you?" And the blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!" And Jesus said to him, "Go; your faith has made you well." Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road. Mark 10:46-52

One Thing You Lack Follow Me

As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. “You know the commandments, ‘DO NOT MURDER, DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, DO NOT STEAL, DO NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS, Do not defraud, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER.’” And he said to Him, “Teacher, I have kept all these things from my youth up.” Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But at these words he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property. Mark 10:17-22

We hear sermons about this rich young ruler and most tell use the lesson is, live by the Ten Commandments and/or giving up things of the world and following Jesus and this is how we inherit eternal life. There may truth in this however, the Holy Spirit has revealed this to me.

Get Up Quickly

The truth is we are already made free by the finished work of Christ Jesus. The biggest problem is that 85% of all believers aren’t experiencing this freedom. One reason is because they don’t know that they are free and when they realize they are free they don’t step out and walk in their freedom.

On the very night when Herod was about to bring him forward, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and guards in front of the door were watching over the prison. And behold, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and woke him up, saying, “Get up quickly.” And his chains fell off his hands. And the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.” And he went out and continued to follow, and he did not know that what was being done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they had passed the first and second guard, they came to the Iron Gate that leads into the city, which opened for them by itself; and they went out and went along one street, and immediately the angel departed from him. Acts 12:6-10

Come and Follow Me.

And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” Mark 10:21

Jesus said, “Come, follow Me”.

The one question I asked the Holy Spirit was. Follow Jesus where?

Some preachers I have heard have said, to follow Jesus is to live as Jesus lived, to do as Jesus Commanded or to be as Jesus was. There is truth in all of this. However the Holy Spirit revealed to me a greater meaning for “Come, follow Me”.

What We Eat Makes All the Difference.

Most people know that if they eat healthy food and drink plenty of water and nutritious drinks they will be, for the most part healthy. On the flip side if they gorge on fast food and junk food they will be fat, out of shape and un-healthy. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. This is of course the thinking of the world and the flesh but there is some truth to it.

Even so, after eating healthy all their lives there are those that are still afflicted, sick and diseased. This can be expected for those in of the world that don’t know Jesus. However for the most part believes in the body of Christ are in just as bad of shape if not worse.
