The Formerly Blind Leading The Blind

An eye surgeon, who went to China as a missionary, began practicing in one of China’s hospitals. One of the first surgeries he performed was on a man who had been nearly blinded by cataracts. The operation was successful and the man recovered his eyesight.

A few weeks later, this missionary was greatly surprised when 48 blind men showed up on his hospital’s doorstep. These blind men had walked more than 250 miles from a remote area of China to get to the hospital in order that they might have their sight restored. They had traveled the entire distance by holding on to a rope that kept them all together. And guess who had held the front end of the rope and led them all the way? It was the man who had his eyesight restored by the missionary surgeon!

And so it should be with us as Christians. We have been freed from the guilt of sin, and have had our “eyes opened.” Are you leading others to the same “Great Physician” Jesus Christ?

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 4:20 "For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.''
