Passage: John 9:24-34
Verse: John 9:25b (NIV 2011)
One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!
We continue to read about the miracle of Jesus restoring the sight to the man born blind. The religious leaders continued to question, or badger, the man whose sight had been restored. Sometimes the answers we seek are in plain sight, but we choose not to accept them. The man born blind held his ground and continued to speak the truth, but the religious leaders would not accept it… or the man who proclaimed it. May we be open to the truth of the gospel and the teachings of Jesus. May we have a simple childlike faith – one sufficient to see the truth and walk toward the light of Christ. May we persevere and be strengthened each time we stand up for the One who saved us from a life of darkness. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
