Matthew 6:22-23 The light of the body is the eye. Therefore, if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is unclear, your whole body will be full of darkness. Therefore, if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
In this text, Jesus describes the eye as a lamp which lights the entire body. Our eyes are the entrance to our hearts and minds, which is the door to our souls.
Jesus is saying that "unclear eyes" has to do with spiritual blindness which causes the whole body to be full of darkness and devoid of God's truth found in His Bible.
If our inner self, our heart, our conscience is darkened, oh how great and terrible is that darkness. You see, but yet, you do not see because you are spiritually blind.
The world (unsaved) live in darkness. They only see the here and now. Eat, drink and be merry. This is my life and I am gonna do as I please. I have only one life to live, so I am going to enjoy it now. There is no God, there is no hell, but there is a heaven I am going to when I die even though I do not believe there is a God.
This is what Jesus says in John 3:19-This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
1 Corinthians 2:14-The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
1 john 1:6-8 If we say we have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus who cleanses us from all sin.
Spiritual sight or spiritual blindness? How are you operating your life?
The Bible tells us that Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. His goals is to make people think they are walking in the light when in fact it's the darkness of false light.
2 Corinthians 11:14-for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
His intention is to blind us to truth, corrupt our minds and gain access to our hearts by what we see.
The devil is good at parading all manner of evil before us and when He does, the light of Christ is hidden from us.
If we truly want to be filled with the "Light of Christ", we have to turn from sin and repent and ask God to forgive and cleanse us and open our spiritual eyes.
We who claim to walk in the light have to stand our grounds against darkness in any form that attempts to make itself appears as light. If you are not true to anyone else, be true to yourself!
Thank you Lord for bringing me out of darkness into your marvelous light. Thank you for giving me a heart and mind to want to continue to walk in in your light with "clear eyes" by the leading of your Word and Your Holy Spirit.
God is light and He who claims to know and love God walk in the "CLEAR" light of His word.
