[From July 5, 2012]

"Then they brought to him a demoniac who was blind & mute; and he cured him, so that the one who had been mute could speak and see."
(Matthew 12:22)

Sight.  Smell.  Taste.  Touch.  Sound.

If you had to give up one of your five senses, which would it be?  Or maybe the question should be which one wouldn't you want to give up?  They say that when one of our senses are gone, the others work even more efficiently.

Now imagine that you've lost TWO senses: your sight & speech.  You can't see the world around you.  Nor can you communicate with your voice.  Wow.  Imagine having lost both at the same time - so you'd have no way of even learning sign language to communicate!  Maybe you could learn to type in order to express yourself, but that would still be harsh!

Then one day, out of the blue, a man comes along and heals you.  Just like that.  No expensive fees.  No detailed maneuvering.  You're just healed.  You can SEE the world around you... and you can TALK about it!  Would it be overwhelming?  Of course!  Would it be amazing?  Absolutely!  That's what happened to a man in Matthew 12:22.

Everything changes with Jesus.
