A look at the vast array of senses that we have and how we interpret them. We also develop spiritual blind spots. How do we address them? How do we engage with others to help them with their spiritual blind spots?

Sermon Notes

God gives us a very sophisticated sensory array and a capacity to interpret those senses.  But, sometimes we lack perception.  There have been many points in history where we thought our armor would protect us.

There are different points of our self.  What about our unknown self that only God knows.

I Cor. 13:12 → God knows more than we know ourselves.

We have a blind spot that we cannot see, we have a facade that we show other people.  We have the ‘unknown area’ where depression and addiction live.

How to address spiritual blind spots

Self-directed correction (seek help from God) “Secret faults.
God gets your attention through an external/internal event that cannot be ignored.
Loving help from others

Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves

Terms of Engagement to help others.

a.)   Take the beam out of your eye.
b.)   Beware of transference.  You spot it, you got it.  We are so intimately familiar with ourselves we can rationalize and see character flaws that we have in others.
c.)  Must truly do all things in love (1 Corinthians 16:14 1 Corinthians 16:14Let all your things be done with charity.

Love shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5 Romans 5:5And hope makes not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us.
