Open Your Eyes to Jesus
“He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.”
John 16:14, niv
The world sees Jesus as a man, perhaps even a good or great man and possibly even a prophet, but still a man. It is the Holy Spirit Who opens our spiritual eyes of understanding so that we see Jesus as much more than just a man. We see Him as: our Creator~the Jehovah of the Old Testament~the long-awaited Messiah~the only Son of God~the Redeemer of Israel~the Lamb of God~the Savior of the world~the Good Shepherd~the risen Lord~the Judge of the universe~the reigning and ruling King of kings!
The only way we can be convinced of Who Jesus is, is through the enlightenment we have received from the Holy Spirit. Jesus explained, “When he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you” (John 16:13–14, niv). So . . . the next time you read your Bible, pray first and ask the Spirit of Truth to open your eyes to Jesus.
