“A man named Jesus made a paste and rubbed it on my eyes and tole me. ‘Go to Siloam and wash.” I did what he said. When I washed, I saw.” John 9:11 The Message

How close will Jesus become in your life…?

 You’ve got blindspots … areas and places in your life where you cannot see. You may have been born with them. You may have acquired them by the way you grew up. You may have them as a result of deep places of pain and brokenness. Everyone around you has blindspots. There is only One who has ever possessed perfect sight. Jesus knows every blindspot in your life. He uses mud. He offers His coat. He heals with a touch. He will step into your life … your mess … your blindness. He won’t judge you. He won’t condemn you. He won’t force you. But … He will step right into the center of your life to rescue you and heal you. Blindness doesn’t turn him away .. and .. sickness doesn’t scare him. Jesus still heals .. even today. And you aren’t outside of His touch. Only Jesus can touch the deepest places of your life. Will you let Him? It only takes a moment for Him to open your eyes … and see.

“When the people got wind that he was back, they sent out word through the neighborhood and rounded up all the sick, who asked for permission to touch the edge of his coat. And whoever touched him was healed.” Matt. 14:36 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
