Faith of Jesus Christ


Lord, that I might receive my sight

2 Kings 6:14-17 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that [be] with us [are] more than they that [be] with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain [was] full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.


Dear Brothers and Sisters, did we see more tribulation than spiritual blessings in this world? Why so?

Let's read another section of Bible from John chapter nine:


John 9:1-3 And as [Jesus] passed by, he saw a man which was blind from [his] birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

John 9:6-7 When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

John 9:35-39 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.


In Spirit, we all are born blind like this man. We cannot see God's blessings, neither know the Son of God. One day, Jesus found us that we were blind and cannot see God's blessings, only saw the tribulation of this world. Thus He has mercy on us, opened our eyes and let us see: once our Spiritual eyes were opened, then we can see the love of our Father, we can see the faith of His Son, we can see the hope of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Saviour. From then on, we are asured by the one who said: I will not leave you comfortless*:(*orphans) I will come to you. (John 14:18) —- that he will be with us all the way to the end of world.


Now Jesus said unto you, “What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?” (Mark 10:51) —- Lord, that I might receive my sight. Amen.
