Message: Everywhere Jesus went, he healed people, and everywhere he healed people there were people with opinions. The crowd was always amazed, but the religious were always critical. Their religion made them spiritually blind, while ironically, Jesus healed men who were physically blind because they believed.
Command: Our obedience to God is not a checklist obligation. It is a heart matter. This is the difference between being religious and being changed.
Promise: A heart for God gives us spiritual eyes to see God and all that he does.
Warning: When we live religiously, we become critical and we are blinded to the heart of God. There may be miracles all around us but we won’t see any of it as long as we are spiritually blind.
Application: Lord Jesus, open my eyes to see your heart, and the heart you intended behind my obedience.
