Eyes That Are Open

  1. 1. Introduction: • Before we came to God we mainly were focused on things of the world (1 Jn. 2:1517). We were spiritually blinded from the truth (2 Cor. 4:3-6). • When we turn to God by His word we begin to see Him and His truth through faith. Romans 10:17; Mt. 13:13-17; Heb. 11:6 • The purpose of Christ’s truth is to open our spiritual eyes of understanding and save us. Acts 26:18
  2. 2. Building A New You Means… • We realize that life and blessings come from God. Psalm 119:17 • That you must develop eyes that are open to God’s word. Psalm 119:18, 24 • Our devotion to learn God’s truth must be intense. Psalm 119:20
  3. 3. Open Eyes Are Grateful To God! • We should seek God’s blessings and life. Psalm 119:17 • Because life and blessings come from God! – Every good and perfect gift… James 1:17 – We have our life and breath and all things from Him! Acts 17:25, 28 – We should develop the great reverence and view of Job concerning life and death. Job 1:20-22 – Jesus wants us to enjoy life abundantly. John 10:10
  4. 4. Open Eyes Will Seek God’s Truth! • Because we know that it is God who can open our eyes of understanding and fill us with the knowledge we need! Ps. 119:18 • We will become an avid student of the Holy Scriptures. 2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Tim. 4:15-16 • God will allow us to grow in our knowledge and understanding as we study. 2 Timothy 2:15; Eph. 5:17 – Through this God will strengthen and ground us in the truth of Christ. Col. 2:6-7; Eph. 3:16-19
  5. 5. Open Eyes Will Be Devoted To God! • We must develop an understanding of the immense value of God’s word. Psalm 119:20, 81 – Just as we see in Proverbs 13:12-14… • Thus, our devotion to God who gives us this understanding and wisdom will increase more and more. Psalm 119:33-40, 44 – We become faithfully dedicated to God. Proverbs 16:3; 1 Peter 4:19 – This will cause us to be right in God’s sight. Colossians 1:22-23
  6. 6. Let Jesus Open Your Eyes! • Be sure to come to God and open your eyes so that you can truly become that new creation in Christ that God has called us to be. • Jesus says to become saved: – Hear and learn… John 6:45; 14:6 – Believe the gospel…Mark 16:15-16 – Repent of sin… Luke 24:47 – Confess Him… Matthew 10:32 – Be baptized… Mark 16:16
