Sweet as home to pilgrims weary, light to newly opened eyes,
Or full springs in deserts dreary, is the rest the cross supplies;
All who taste it shall to rest immortal rise.
We look this week at Jesus, the great Giver of Sight. Though God dwells in light inaccessible, hid from our eyes, Jesus turns our darkness into light and our blindness into sight. The great news is that Christ continues the same work which He did for the blind man in Mark 8: He opens blind eyes through the preaching of God’s word. Jesus once healed by spitting into a man’s eyes and touching him. Today, Jesus heals the blind by sending men and women to bear witness of God’s word. Last Tuesday, the Nashville Presbytery examined Brian and licensed him to preach the word of Christ! The Lord Jesus Christ sends men like Brian to heal sinners and give them the salve of eternal life. May the Lord send Brian to give us an ever-growing sight of His glory in the face of Jesus Christ. —James Crampton
