I See Men Like Trees

“They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?” He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.” Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭8:22-25‬ ‭NIV‬‬
I’ve read this scripture so many times, but today I felt God say to me, this is how disciples grow. They see a little clearer everyday.
Discipleship is a process. Knowing Jesus intimately and growing in the knowledge of His love isn’t a one time thing. Discipleship is a walk. It’s a journey.
When we make our good confession, only our Spirit becomes perfect immediately. Our soul and our body still needs sanctification.
Sanctification takes place as we allow God to touch us with His Word in a way that will make our vision just a little bit clearer than yesterday.
Sanctification is a process that is driven by renewing our minds in the Word of God and crucifying our old flesh daily.
When we are first saved, we see people walking around like trees. With each touch from Jesus, our vision of Heavenly things and things of the Kingdom become clearer and crisper everyday!
Let’s decide to allow God to shape us and let’s continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. The road ahead is only getting brighter!
