Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

by Kim B. Clark

I am reading the account of Christ’s last week in mortality – backwards – in all four gospels this Easter season. I started with His appearance after the resurrection and I am now to the Garden of Gethsemane and the betrayal.

As I read, I can’t help but wonder where I would fit in if I had experienced these things first hand like His disciples did.  Where would I be in this account? Am I one to praise His triumphant entry into Jerusalem to only shout CRUCIFY HIM days later?

Then I realize, where am I now?  Where do I fit into the narrative now?   Do I declare His good works but deny them when they don’t occur in my timeframe or desired way?

The only way to make it in this day and age is to provide an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to have daily interaction with me.  Every day I need to spend time seeing and hearing or else I will be knocked off the rock and my course uncertain.
