Aaron Dowds – 2020 Vision
Sermon notes on the Bible app
20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. They also are called Snellen fractions, named after Herman Snellen, the Dutch ophthalmologist who developed this eyesight measurement system in 1862.
20/20 vision indicates the sharpness or clarity of vision at a distance.
In this message I want to show how you can have 20/20 spiritual vision. How you can have clarity and sharpness of spiritual vision. Without doubt vision is one of the most valuable gifts you have. Helen Keller who was blind once said: “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”
We will discover how to avoid spiritual short-sightedness. Short-sighted is being unable to see things clearly unless they are close to the eyes. It’s the inability to see things clearly which are far off. It’s used metaphorically to describe lacking imagination or foresight such as describing a “short-sighted government.”
Mark Twain once said: “You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”
In this message you will hear one powerful story tomorrow of a man who had his eyes opened and this gave him unbelievable courage and strength to go on an bring major transformation to his culture and nation which had global impacts.
