When Paul received his sight, he also received spiritual insight into the Person of Jesus Christ. His entire life and preaching from that point on were totally consumed with nothing but Jesus Christ— “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2). Paul never again allowed anything to attract and hold the attention of his mind and soul except the face of Jesus Christ.
We must learn to maintain a strong degree of character in our lives, even to the level that has been revealed in our vision of Jesus Christ.
The lasting characteristic of a spiritual man is the ability to understand correctly the meaning of the Lord Jesus Christ in his life, and the ability to explain the purposes of God to others. The overruling passion of his life is Jesus Christ. Whenever you see this quality in a person, you get the feeling that he is truly a man after God’s own heart (see Acts 13:22).
Never allow anything to divert you from your insight into Jesus Christ. It is the true test of whether you are spiritual or not. To be unspiritual means that other things have a growing fascination for you. Since mine eyes have looked on Jesus, I’ve lost sight of all beside, So enchained my spirit’s vision, Gazing on the Crucified.
~ Oswald Chambers - Reading for April 2 - My Utmost for His Highest
When studying a devotional text like this it is important to remind ourselves of who and what Jesus Christ, as God incarnate, really is. God is like the U.S. Constitution in that everyone talks about Him, but few have any clear idea of what they mean. It helps clarify the message if we go back and substitute TRUTH for Jesus Christ or God every time we see it. It helps even more to reread the selection substituting LOVE in the same way.
Indulging a passion for denigration and the attempt to "destroy" an opponent in argument is as destructive and demoralizing as it is unkind. It's always wise to resist the temptation to get someone else's goat.
Peace be with you.
