Key Verse: 9:38
Prayer: Father, thank you for giving sight to the blind through our Lord Jesus Christ. Bless His name!One Word: See and believe!
The blind man's eyesight had been fully restored by Jesus. But what did he see? More blind people! We see how the man's spiritual vision became clearer and clearer as he thought about the work and love of Jesus. At first, his spiritual vision was still cloudy. When his neighbors asked about how his vision was restored, he spoke about a man named Jesus. The interrogation of the Pharisees caused him to think more about what happened and when they asked him what he had to say about Jesus, he said that Jesus was a prophet. After more confrontation with the Pharisees, the man realized that Jesus must be from God. This man refused to let go of what God had done for him: "One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!" Do you cling to what Jesus has done for you?
When Jesus heard that the man had been thrown out of the synagogue, he found him and gave him the ultimate vision test. He asked, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" When Jesus identified himself, the man saw God and worshiped his Savior. Has the light of Christ led you to a life of worship? The light of Christ reveals the true state of those who think they can see on their own. Only through Jesus can we see God.
