"One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!"

(JOHN 9:25B)

John 9

Jesus gave a man who was born blind the physical ability to see. Soon after, Jesus also gave him spiritual sight revealing that Jesus was the Son of Man. Without hesitation the man worshipped Him. The Pharisees refused to believe that the man had been blind and could now see, just as they did not believe that Jesus was their Messiah. Maybe to them Jesus just seemed too good to be true. They refused to move beyond the limits of their natural reasoning to accept that what they most desired was right before them. The One who embodied all their hopes had come, yet they did not recognize Him. They could not see.


Paul taught the Corinthians about the inability to see spiritually. He said it was as if a veil covered the people’s hearts so that their minds were dull. They did not have a revelation of the truth. “But,” Paul said, “whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away” (2 Corinthians 3:16). Spiritually, we too were born blind. When we accept Jesus as Lord, our eyes
are opened!
