“The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. 35 Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.” Luke 11:33-35
No one would purposefully want to be blind. It usually comes with disease or injury. You don’t have to convince people they are blind. They know it. Spiritual blindness is another issue. Jesus constantly told people they were blind and needed light in their life.
Jesus stated that people do not usually light lamps only to cover them with baskets. Yet in our spiritual walk we do this activity all the time. We see truth and shortly thereafter cover-up our revelation. Suffice it to say, most of the light you have received has been buried or ignored. God has had to give us the same revelations time and time again.
To combat this issue, Jesus informs us that our eyes must be “clear.” This means being singularly devoted in purpose and intent. Our eyes reflect what’s in our heart. In addition, if our eyes are dark it is because we view too much evil. Evil covers or clouds what revelation and truth we do possess. The more immorality and wickedness we choose to view, the more pervasive our blindness becomes. Our eyes have appetites like our stomachs. Whatever we choose to feed our eyes, they crave all the more.
Do you want illumination? Do you want your whole body filled with fresh revelation? It is possible. First choose to let the light of God’s revelation in, treasure it, and ask the Lord for more.
