One of the most famous psychology experiments of all time is the "invisible gorilla" test (You can take the test below).
It is a funny test, that most people fail miserably...if they haven't been tipped off in advance! But it shows us how much that is right before us that we don't actually see.
Matthew 8-9 is all about salvation and in these final miracles Jesus brings sight to the blind. But if the invisible Gorilla test is true, then there is so much we don't see.
We don't see so many of His gifts or other's graces. Do you have eyes to see? Eyes to see all His mercies? Eyes to see other's hurts? Eyes to see opportunity? Eyes to see true beauty?
In today's service, we will ask Jesus to give us eyes to see.
