I came across an article entitled “Patient’s Blinks Kept Him Alive as Doctors Prepared to Switch Off Life Support.” Within the article it talked about a man who had been in a motorcycle accident. This man, 43 years old, had told family of his wish not to live in a vegetative state after witnessing a friend be in such a state. With that in mind his family made the decision to “pull the plug” and allow nature to take its course. However simply moments before the doctors were about to remove the ventilator the man managed to open his eyes and blink to get the doctors attention. Through blinking he was able to tell the doctors he wanted to live, not die. As I read this I couldn’t help but think of how great it is that we have a “perfect doctor” (Mark 2:17). Jesus is the Great Physician, who came in perfection (Hebrews 4:15), and gave the antidote to sin (Ephesians 1:7). Christ knows when we are wanting to live spiritually (Revelation 3:20) and will not “pull the plug” on any that want to live. The question we must all ask ourselves is, do we want to live? If you want to live and are willing to go to God’s most precious Word, we here at the church of Christ in Ramona would love to simply open up God’s Word and study what God wants each of us to do. Please put forth the effort for God, because He has put forth the effort for you (John 3:16).
Blinking Never Seemed So Good
