Jesus heals a man born blind
I came to understand some interesting things about Jesus. He healed this man on the sabbath, which it was a law for the pharisees, that no one can work or even carry a Matt. I believe they took it to the extreme.
I couldn't imagine what it world even be like to live my entire life in blindness. I'm sure this man has gone through great difficulty. As a child, he had to recognize his on parents by voice & touch instead of sight. Blindness is like a restriction. Doesn't mean you were not able to do anything, bu rather you were not able to do as much. I believe Jesus understood and saw this mans heart & condition. Jesus knew that there was no cure for this mans restoration. Jesus knew that there wasn't going to be anyone else in the world that would be capable its helping this man see but God.
I came to understand that Jesus does not only know and see our present condition, however he is willing and ready to help. If there are two words I can use to describe Jesus is, "The Greatest." I say this because I don't believe that anyone else but Jesus, that can use their spit to open the eyes of the blind
Verse 4 "We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us."
Verse 7 "He told him, "Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam" (Siloam means "sent"). So the man went and washed and came back seeing!"
its interesting how in verse 4 Jesus speaks of the importance of fulfilling our purpose and task in this world by God who sent us. Then Jesus send this man to the pool of Siloam which means "sent." This man was sent by God. God gave him a task. Not only a task, but a miracle. He want able to see until he completed his task that Jesus had assign to him. Scripture says, "he came back seeing."
Although many of us want the blessings in our hands ASAP, the key to being the blessings is obedience. of the blind man did not listen to Jesus, I guaranteed his sight wouldn't of been restored. inside the miracle cabinet you will find the key of obedience.
one may say, "why did Jesus use his spit? Why mud?" the answer is simple, he did so because he can. Jesus can do anything with anything. It reveals his greatness. The response of this man's neighbors was amazement and puzzlement. I can imagine many jaw dropping moments. However, the response of the pharisee was negative. Instead of praising God for this miracle, they doubted Jesus and didn't believe he was anyone important. Jesus was "the greatest" for many, but for the pharisees Jesus was "the greatest disturbance."
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
