Blind Spots (7 of 8)
Series: It's All About Jesus
Pastor Jeff Schreve
If you have your Bible, please turn to John chapter 9, John chapter 9. I want to talk to you about a message I've entitled, "Blind Spots."
Now, when I was in 10th grade, I started to have lots of trouble with my eyes. The squinting to see the chalkboard at school, it got harder and harder.
