So, the question we must ask our-self is this:"How does the eyes of the spiritually blind open?" Two of the most prominent tools(mechanism) the Lord uses to reveal his glory to the unbeliever is prayer and evangelism. Our prayers(Romans 10:1) are as critical as evangelism(Romans 10:14-15) in opening the eyes of the lost to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. At the end of the day we need to pray and share our faith if we want the eyes of the spiritually blind open. As I close out this blog entry, I leave you with a quote from a German evangelist “Evangelism without intercession is like a bomb without a detonator. Intercession without evangelism is like a detonator without a bomb.”- Reinhard Bonnke. As we continue to pray and share(the gospel) with our spouse, children, families, friends, neighbors and colleagues the Holy Spirit will begin to open their eyes.
Day 12: January 22nd. Pray that God will open their spiritual eyes & ears: It is so important that we pray that the Lord open the eyes & ears of those who are lost around us. Many of our friends, colleagues, neighbors and many others in our sphere of influence are spiritually blind & deaf because they don’t know Christ. People need to hear from a church that has the words of life. So, our prayer today is that the Holy Spirit will use EthnosDC(NWM, H2i etc) to open the ears & eyes. --2 Corinthians 4:4, Matthew 13:15*, Matthew 13:1-22
