Pastor’s Page: 10/01/2019 ~ “Watch Out for Blind Spots!”


Who can understand his errors or omissions? Acquit me of hidden (unconscious, unintended) faults.
13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule and have control over me.
Then I will be blameless (complete),
And I shall be acquitted of great transgression.

The term “blind spot” is not one directly used or found in the Bible, but it is a principle mentioned often in various scriptures and has applicability to the Christian life.  Blind spots represent hidden objects or character defects that are obstructed due to our inability to see and know things that are not in our direct line of sight, sometimes go ignored, are denied, or dismissed, as unimportant or harmless.  All of which, much like when driving a car, can result in extremely dangerous, destructive accidents to our spiritual lives, relationship with God, as well as, harm others.

Spiritually, blind spots can cause us to misjudge our own sinfulness, or recognize our need for the Holy Spirit’s help in bringing biblical conviction to our lives. In John 16:8 Jesus referring to the Holy Spirit, declared “And when he comes, he will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment.”  As Christians, we must always be aware of and careful not to allow worldly values, thinking, or behaviors, to become blind spots to our spiritual walk and relationship with Christ. 


Satan constantly targets Believer’s blind spots as his opportunity to drive us into a head on deadly collision with sin! We must be careful, prayerful, and diligent, to confess our faults and allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal those things that are not of God!


Finally family, I encourage you in the Lord and word of, Matthew 26:41AMP ~ “ Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the [a]body is weak.”


Blessings & Favor,
