He was born blind so that God’s power might be shown in him. John 9:3

As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. His disciples asked him about the cause of this man’s blindness; his sin or his parents. Jesus answered, ” Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was born blind so that God’s power might be shown in him. ” He then made paste with spittle and clay and rubbed it on the eyes of the blind man. After he told him to go and wash in the Pool of Siloan. This name means ‘sent’. He went and washed and came back able to see.

Jesus is the light : The blind man sees the light of day for Jesus approved himself as long as he is in the world, he is the light of the world. Jesus is the light, but people are divided about him. Some are open to the light, that is to faith; others remain blind, keeping their own ideas and ” their own ” belief.

Jesus refused to consider every disgrace as God’s punishment. The Gospel story of the healing of the blind man was performed on the Sabbath. This story shows us the blind man who immediately understands the significance of the cure, the fearful and pragmatic father, and the Pharisees who do nothing but judge and are unaware that they condemn themselves as they judge.

It is quite understandable that the Pharisees cast out the blind man, because  faith in Christ necessarily separates the believer from those who don’t recognize the way God is working. The man who begins to see is the believer who acquires a taste of life and things different from the world’s standards thus.

Let your faith rest in God’s power.
