Believe in Jesus

What do you believe in? Do you believe the sun will rise tomorrow? Do you believe you have or will find love? Do you believe you have enough money for retirement? Do you believe you will find the perfect job? Do you believe in God? Do you believe in Jesus?

We believe in many things. We believe the sun will rise again in the morning. We believe in finding love. We believe in education. We believe in being self-sufficient. We believe in taking care of ourselves. We believe in looking for success in our work.

A child was born blind. He grew up blind. He became a man and lived blind. But one day, he met someone who would change his life. Jesus opened his eyes. Suddenly, the man could see. He saw the vivid colors. He saw the drab buildings, and thought they were wonderful. He saw the pool of water in which he washed his eyes. He saw his own reflection. He saw people for the first time. He saw Jesus for who he is and believed Him.

Do we see Jesus for who He is? Do we believe in Him? If we do, we may have our eyes opened as well. We will then see things as they are and not how we want them to be. We will see God working in our lives and in this world. We will see Jesus as our Lord and our Savior.

I pray we all believe in Jesus. I pray we ask Him to open our eyes. I pray each one of us will see God at work in our lives and in the world around us. Believe in Jesus. Ask Him to open your eyes. See Jesus as Lord. See Jesus as Savior. See God at work in your life.

John 9:35-38 Jesus heard that they had driven him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “And who is he, sir? Tell me, so that I may believe in him.” Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and the one speaking with you is he.” He said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped him.
