Eyes Wide Open

Eyes Wide Open

Do you ever wonder why the people around Jesus didn’t recognize Him as Messiah? Could it be that their presuppositions blinded them to His true identity? Perhaps He didn’t live up to their expectations. It’s always easier to criticize someone else’s blindness than to examine our own presuppositions. Before judging Jesus’ contemporaries, take a moment to consider how your expectations and presuppositions might be blinding you to what God is doing (and wants you to do) in your present circumstances.

He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. – John 1:10-11

Prayer: Spirit, be my guide and teacher. Show me where I am overlooking God’s presence and activity in my present circumstances. Open my eyes to what Jesus is doing in the here and now. Teach me how You want me to love, live, and lead in His name today. Amen.
