Good Morning April 25

Chapter nine of St. John’s Gospel has the account of Jesus healing a man who was born blind. Of course He did it on the Sabbath which got him in trouble with the Pharisees. The Jewish leaders grilled the man who had been healed trying to get something they could use against Jesus. I really love this guy in the way he stood his ground against the officials. They tried to get him in a¬†theological discussion which the man rejected. He simply said, “This one thing I know. Once I was blind, but now I can see.” The Lord had worked in his life. He knew it, and he wouldn’t back down. If you are a Christian, if you have¬†known the Lord for some period of time, I think you can identify with this man. There is one, or perhaps a few, turing points in your life about which you can say, “This I know. Once I was blind, but now I see. I know the Lord worked in my life at that very point and I am changed because of it.” You may not be able to explain it clearly to others so that it has the same meaning it has for you, but nonetheless it is real. Jesus touched you. For the healed blind man it led him to worship the Lord. Let it do the same for us.
