Apr 17 – The Eyes Have It

If you were to walk twice around the world, you would have covered the same distance as the miles of arteries and veins in the human body. But there is only one place where we can see the blood vessels and that is in the retina at the back of the eye. Increasingly, doctors are able to diagnose diseases such as the hardening of narrowing of blood vessels, small clots and other problems by retinal examination. As the Psalmist, speaking for us all said that God “formed my inward parts …covered me in my mother’s womb…I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” And He has also diagnosed our spiritual and moral problem. Sin separates us from God. But there is a cure. “Christ died for our sins.” He became the perfect Substitute. By acknowledging our spiritual bankruptcy and accepting His sacrifice, we can become children of God. Have you accepted the diagnosis and cure?
