Back in the 1990’s Magic Eye® images swept the world in popularity. Perhaps you have seen their images. If you focus your eyes beyond the image, the image comes to life. You can see it in three dimensions! I love Magic Eye images.
Some people can’t see the images. Try as they might, they just can’t get their eyes to focus correctly. I’ve tried to show it to them, but they just can’t seem to get it.
When people aren’t getting spiritual truth, we ought to pray as those in the Bible prayed. Paul prayed, “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling” (Ephesians 1:18). Elisha prayed, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see” (2 Kings 6:17). They were praying for spiritual eyes to be opened to see spiritual realities.
I love it when people finally do get it. They see the three dimensional image and their face lights up with excitement. The same takes place when people see the realities of the gospel. Their face lights up and their lives are changed as they finally see the glories of Jesus, who died for their sins.
