And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. John 9:1-3
As Jesus and his disciples came across a blind man, his disciples asked an interesting question “Who made this man blind, his sin or his parents sin”” The disciples’ understanding was this man was born blind as a curse for his sin or his parents sin. This was a total misunderstanding of God
Jesus made clear, this man’s disability was not caused by anyone’s sin, but so God can be glorified through him. God allowed this man to be disabled, so his power can be revealed.
We must remember we live in a fallen world because of sin, we can’t expect everything to be rainbows and butterflies, but God can use any circumstance to bring glory and reveal who He is!
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. John 9:4-5
You might say “Well this world is so dark and evil, how could God exist” , Jesus is the Light of the World, to reveal God’s presence and Glory in this dark world. Remember the world is fallen because of the consequences of our sin. The world is fallen because of our own wickedness.
The fact that we can discern Good vs Evil, proves God does exist. There would be no standard of morality if God didn’t exist. Jesus is The Light in this dark world of evilness. This is why the world rejects Christ, because the world is evil
When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing. John 9:6-7
Jesus healed the blind man, why? To reveal the glory of God in this dark world. To reveal that Jesus is The Light of the world. There is no other light except Christ
People are always trying to find the “good” in the world, the only “good” is Jesus Christ! Come to him all you that are weary and burden laden, Jesus will give you rest! Rejection of Christ will leave you in eternal darkness Amen!
