Hearing with Spiritual Ears, Seeing with Spiritual Eyes

And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, "Aha! [You] who destroy the temple and build [it] in three days, "save Yourself, and come down from the cross!" Likewise the chief priests also, mocking among themselves with the scribes, said, "He saved others; Himself He cannot save. "Let the Christ, the King of Israel, descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe." Even those who were crucified with Him reviled Him. Mark 15:29-32

Jesus made some outrageous claims--at least to those who weren't listening with spiritual ears or seeing with spiritual eyes. His claim that He could rebuild the temple in three days referred to His death and resurrection (John 2:20-22)--which was happening right before their very eyes. But they couldn't see it.

Likewise, those who taught the scripture for a living couldn't see that "this Messiah" was indeed going to come down from the cross, but in a way that brought salvation. They were "blind guides" (Matthew 15:14) even as they watched the scripture being fulfilled.

In your life, is it possible that there's a promise of God being fulfilled in a way you just aren't seeing? If so, open your spiritual eyes and ears, and ask Him to let you see the spiritual reality.

Prayer: God open my spiritual eyes. I don't want to miss what You're doing right in front of me.
