Do You Have Eyes to See the Beauty of God?
Being part of the family of God must mean having eyes to see the supreme worth and beauty of God.
A person blind in the physical sense may see a thousand times more glory in the Gospel of Jesus than a person with eyes.
That was certainly true of Fanny Crosby, the Christian songwriter who was bling from childhood and wrote more than five thousand songs to celebrate the glory she saw in Jesus. Without physical eyes, she saw the “great things” of God.
To God be the glory, great things He has done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
Oh, come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.
[from John Piper – Reading the Bible Supernaturally]
