Seeing colour for the first time is like being born into a different world!
The following video features a colourblind man seeing colour for the first time. This simple scenario reminds me of being ‘born again’. We are introduced to a man who, to this point, has only seen in the world in shades of mud. Suddenly everything comes alive with colour. It is not unlike a man who has been awakened from death to life.

A Surprise for Colourblind Man
One cannot help but be touched at the response of this 66-year-old man. It speaks to me of the world which became clear when my eyes were opened. It continues to reflect the growing vision I acquire the more I know God. Perhaps to those who are not Christians, in the sense that I am, the implications are only natural. But for those who share in my experience, the revolutionary awakening of our spiritual senses is like an introduction to a whole new world.
This phenomenon is made possible because God has made us to relate to him. There is a tremendous void without Him. Unfortunately, like this colour-blind man, if we can only see the world in limited shades there is no way of know what we cannot see. But we were made to see the world as it is… as it really is.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to reveal colours to someone who is colourblind. They must take our word for the fact that we see something they do not. This is the reality when one has become connected to God, versus the one who has not. Until you see it is very difficult to believe, but believe you must!
Life Changing Experience
Nevertheless I must tell you with all the conviction I can muster, that experiencing the reality of the depth of God is life changing. The joy we see in this man is an excellent mirror image of a spiritual awakening. If you have a Christian friend you do not understand, you are like this man must have been when others spoke of colour. It was pointless and immaterial… until now that is. The childlike simple expressions of clapping from this fully grown and mature man, represents the experience of one who has been awakened.
Yet, this colourblind man had no clue what was coming to him. He could not imagine the experience that was about to come even though it were told them. Similarly, there lies in wait an equally significant awakening for each and every man and woman. We all have an opportunity to know God and discover our true purpose. Please do not wait, but seek Him while you have breath.
