Eyes That See

“I Once Was Blind”

Simplicity.

I think that if we can grasp these simple things, then we can make some ginormous strides toward living “our best life now.”  Ultimately, our best life will be after death.  But, Jesus came that we may live, and live abundantly.  By the grace of God, I think these simple concepts can help us draw nearer to that abundant life.

1. Love

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. -1 Corinthians 13:1-3

2. Bear One Another’s Burdens

Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. -Galatians 6:2

3. Make Disciples Who Make Disciples

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” -Matthew 28:18-20
