Once I Was Blind

Text:
John 9:13-15; 18-25

Memory Verse:
“He answered and said, whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see” (John 9:25).

The blindness of the man in John 9 overshadowed his original identity. Rather than being addressed by his name, he was identified as a blind man. However, the day he met Jesus his age-long physical blindness was reversed.

On the contrary, there are eyes that are open, but cannot see, as it was till Elijah prayed for the eyes of his servant to be opened in 2 Kings 6:17. Spiritual blindness results in lack of connection with God, and ignorance of what God is doing. Only with spiritual insight can one see the goodness of God. When one has not given one’s life to Christ, the person is considered to be spiritually blind. Such a person can easily fall into many ditches and life can become unbearable. That person will walk in gross darkness and only the power of salvation can bring light into their life. From the blind man’s story, you must learn that:
1. Divine encounters can provoke the miraculous. When the blind young man had an encounter with Jesus, his problem was over, and his sight was restored.
2. Your location can determine your allocation. Staying where God assigned you to be will ensure you are duly located. The widow of Zarephath was preparing her meal when Prophet Elijah located her.
3. The blind man had a good problem. Any problem that leads one to Christ is a good problem because knowing Him is everything.
4. The blind man’s testimony can be yours too if you will encounter Jesus today.

Prayer Points:
1. Lord, open my eyes to see Your works in my life.
2. Lord, I desire to have an encounter with You.
