Dr. Sam Lawton was born blind. Nevertheless, he had a ministry in Spartanburg, S.C. Years before he died he traveled to the Holy Land. His group was following the steps of Jesus in His ministry. Approaching Jericho, the guide told them, "Right over there is the rock where Bartemaeus first met Jesus and was healed of his blindness." Dr. Lawton asked his friend, "Take me over to that rock." The whole crowd was hushed in silence as Dr. Lawton stood on that site and began to sing a little song that goes like this: "The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin, the Light of the world is Jesus. Like sunshine at noonday His glory shone in, the Light of the world is Jesus." And by this time I am told that this dear man's face radiated with great joy as he concluded: "Once I was blind, but now I can see, the Light of the world is Jesus."

Jesus helps people to see. He helps people see their families and friends in new way. Jesus help people see opportunities for improving their lives. Jesus makes it possible for people to see God. He can help you and me see things we never saw before.
