Luke 11:34

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 34 The light of the body is the eye [spiritual eye, the eye of the heart]. Therefore when your eye is sound [clear without beams or specs], your whole body also is full of light; but when your eye is evil, your body is full of darkness. [Jesus said he came to make blind those who said they could see, (who thought they understood righteousness), and to make the blind, (those who knew they were not righteous), to see. The Jews had great knowledge of the scriptures, but were spiritually blind because they had no light; they had not been listening to the Word of the Lord in their heart, and so they thought Jesus was evil. Their spiritual ears were stopped and their spiritual eyes were closed; they had not been taught and changed by the Spirit of God and so had no light to see by. Until taught by the Holy Spirit, like all men, the Jews were in darkness. No amount of scripture study can produce light to dispel darkness. From the word of the Lord within: "Light does not come from outside the heart. Light comes from faith in the voice."]
