Scripture- John 9:25- “I don’t know whether he is a sinner,” the man replied. “But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!”
Observations- Jesus healed a man born blind from on the Sabbath, which greatly upset the religious officials. The man was confronted several times by them about his healing, and his testimony came down to what he personally experienced: "I was blind, and now I can see!" Of course, it was not only literal sight that was so important in the story- seeing spiritual truth about Jesus was far more important.
Application- What's your story? In what ways were you blind and now- through the power of the Holy Spirit's intervention in your life- you can see? No matter what it is your story is powerful and important. Your personal testimony points to the way you are alive and made new in Christ! Every follower of Jesus has a story worth repeating- whether it's a remarkable story of a 180 degree turnaround from a life far from God or a gently unfolding story of slowly allowing God's grace to operate more fully in our lives. I celebrate your unique story of transformation and new life in Christ!
Prayer- Dear God, thank You for moving me from spiritual blindness to being able to see Your truth in the power of grace. Of course, You well know all of my current blind spots, so come alongside me and help me see myself as I am as clearly as possible. Allow me the privilege of submitting myself once again to You, so I can remember I belong to You for Your glory. Amen.
"This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!" (2 Corinthians 5:17),
