Blind-spots – "an area in your range of vision that you cannot see properly." A blind-spot is best understood in relation to driving a car. In driving a car the area just over the left shoulder cannot be seen properly through the rearview mirror and therefore becomes a blind-spot. All vehicles have blind-spots and it these blind-spots that often cause accidents that damage vehicles, injure, cripple, and even kill some people. Just as every vehicle has blind-spots that are hidden and keep the drivers from seeing things that are important; every believer in Christ Jesus has some blind-spots in their lives that if left unchecked will cause great damage to their lives. The tricky thing about our personal spiritual blind-spots is that often times believers don’t even know they have them. Spiritual blind-spots occur in believers' lives because of their rejection of those important Biblical truths they ought to understand and obey, but do not understand and obey, and they make no effort to understand and obey them. Spiritual blind-spots occur when believers do not give attention to those Biblical principles they ought to give attention. It is important for believers to commit themselves to studying, understanding, and disciplining themselves in applying the Word of God to their lives. The problem is not in believers having blind-spots but in their thinking they can see. In the Scripture, the blind who came to Jesus knew very well they couldn't see, but the Pharisees, those who thought they were living religious lives, were not aware of their blindness and even denied they were blind. And the result was, Jesus could not heal them of their blindness because they would not admit they were blind. The danger of believers' blind-spots will result in great damage to their spiritual and physical lives. In order for believers to get healing of their spiritual blind-spots they must first admit they have blind-spots, get into the Word of God and allow it to show them their blind-spots, humble themselves before the Lord for grace, and then consciously discipline themselves to stop doing those things that are sinful and do those things that are righteous. (John 9:39-41), " And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth."
