If I want to see things clearly, I have to wear classes. Since fifth grade I’ve been praying for my eyesight to be healed, but I haven’t received my total healing yet. When I don’t wear my glasses, everything is blurry and I can’t see. But when I put them on, instantly I can see clearly.
The change in my eyesight when I wear glasses reminds me of the day I asked Jesus to come into my heart. When I was living without Jesus, I was one of the walking dead. But when I asked Him to come inside my heart and He became my personal Savior, I could feel an immediate change. I went from darkness to light. Suddenly the old Lindsay no longer existed, and Lindsay, the child of God, came alive. I became a different person!
And, according to 2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV, that’s exactly what happened. That verse says, If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Accepting Jesus as my Savior was a life-changing moment for me, much like the man whose blindness was healed by Jesus. The Pharisees tried to convince him that Jesus was a sinner, but the healed man said to them, “I don’t know whether he is a sinner … But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see” (John 9:25 NLT)! Jesus had transformed his life.
If you are ready to leave your old life behind and become a new creation in Christ, pray with me: Father God, I am a sinner. A sinner who wants to come out of the darkness into Your light. I repent of my sins and ask for Your forgiveness and mercy. I have been blind, but now I am ready to see! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
