Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

In a DVD presentation of the work of a Christian Hospital in Madagascar one particularly encouraging story was that of an elderly and blind woman who walked to the hospital with her daughter. She was checked out by the eye specialist who found that, sadly, one eye was completely useless; but the other eye had a heavy cataract that could be operated on. The operation was done under local anaesthetic and when next day the dressing was removed the woman could see. She saw the colours and patterns of her dress and could see how many fingers the nurse was holding up. And her joy was so infectious. She was smiling broadly, chattering away and every now and then did a little skipping dance. Her life was revolutionised. How much more joy is there when the Holy Spirit gives a sinner spiritual sight!
