Tomorrow morning I'll be kicking off another series called "Blind Spots."
The idea is to get at some of those places in our walk with Christ that we just don't see as a problem, even though God's Word is clear. There are so many I could go after. I'm using John 9, and Jesus' healing of the blind man and the subsequent dust up with the Pharisees to set the tone for the series.
Bunny and I were talking today about areas we feel like we need to change within our lives in order to grow. In every case, our present situation wasn't as a result of any outside forces acting against us. We couldn't blame the government, the economy or anyone else. And we couldn't claim that we were unable to affect changes that we saw were necessary.
As that sage from Waycross, Georgia so aptly quipped, "We have met the enemy, and he is us."
My hope is that we'll hold a spiritual mirror up to the way we live and see as Jesus sees, not as we do - behind our "blind spots."
