Mark 8:22-25 I often wonder why Jesus acted the way he acted many times in the Scriptures! Why take a blind man out of the most familiar place he knows?
To see afresh? Maybe see differently! Or, probably Christ took him out of the village because it was the “village” that clouded his eyes?
Jesus also warned the blind man not to go back to the “village”! Jesus did not want him to broadcast him that I understand, but I also think it means more.
I don’t know what village means to you, but for me, it means, don’t go back to being blind to your status in Christ Jesus, acting small to fit in, staying in that box, devaluing yourself, doubting the power at work in you and much more!
Some of us have been delivered from Spiritual blindness, this is a warning not to go back into ignorance. Don’t look back at the past longingly friends, there is nothing back there for you!
Move forward in the capability of the Most High God! You can see now, don’t pretend you can’t! Shine your light and let the world see that great things Christ has done!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Love this post, Joan! Yes, we get free, then return to the familiar. Or we glory in that village and our past blindness. Such a good parallel, thanks for sharing!
