Remember when I shared this study? If you've been reading along or working through it - we'll continue here:
Now that we've studied the passages teaching about blindness - let's begin to pull that together and make some applications.
If you're working through the study - look at the themes you wrote down and see if there is one overarching theme that you can take away from this time in His Word.
Come up with your own definition of blindness and sight! And, consider what the number one thing that has come to mind as a result of this study. How can you apply this? Ask God to show you what He has in mind for application in your own life!
I'd love to hear some of the themes that appeared to you - here are a few things I observed:
* God can restore sight - He created it and He is in control!
* There is no respect of persons with Him. (Ephesians 6)
* Sin can be blinding.
* Blindness or sight: either one can bring Him glory!
* All hardships are not sin - but what will allow us to see God at work and show His glory. I loved Luke 18:40-43 and wondered if the man had ever seen before? Imagine his faith! This thought spurred on the next section where we'll look at the appeals made and Jesus' responses.
