FROM THE EDITORS

"Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not?" When Christ Jesus asked these questions of his disciples, wasn't he implying that there are things to see—and ways of seeing them—that aren't so evident to the human senses? The Master often perceived the beauty and perfection of God's creation where others may have seen only a diseased or sinful person. And he also consistently heard God's messages of truth and love when others were listening only to the world's arguments of despair and fear.

What effect did Jesus' spiritual vision and discernment have? It had a healing effect—even at times when there may have seemed to be no hope at all. For example, when Jesus came upon a man born blind, Jesus said that "the works of God should be made manifest in him." To most of the people witnessing this event, it probably wasn't evident that the "man which was blind from his birth" was actually God's perfect child—His perfect work. Yet this is what Jesus beheld, and the power behind his prayer healed the man. He received his sight.
