"Lift up thine eyes"
Repeatedly it is recorded in the Gospels that those whom Christ Jesus healed, as well as the onlooking multitudes, glorified God. To glorify means, in part, to adore and magnify. From this it may be concluded that by his healing works the Master directed thought to the supremacy of Spirit and to the glory of God and His creation.
With the aid of various material devices the scope of human vision is enlarged far beyond its ordinary capacity. For example, the tiny snowflake is found to possess beauty, intricacy, and singularity of design wholly imperceptible to the naked eye. Coal tar, obtained by the distillation of bituminous coal, is said to yield more than ten thousand colors, hues, and tones, though it appears almost devoid of all light and color. Such illustrations hint the magnitude of the grand realities that are unfolded through the perception of the things of Spirit.
It was not, however, material but spiritual sense which aided the Master in magnifying, glorifying, God. No human device can enable the material eye to see God or even glimpse man's individual capacities. Whenever the concept of sight is lifted out of matter, spiritual sense unfolds the latent potentialities of man, and each individual idea is seen to possess its own individual expression of the gracious, health-giving, radiant qualities of Soul.
