General Comment~When Jesus saw there was always an appropriate reaction and in each case we can learn from the event.
Today’s Scripture~“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.And His disciples asked Him, saying, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’Jesus answered, ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.Imust work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.’When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.And He said to him, ‘Go, wash in the pool of Siloam’ (which is translated, Sent).So he went and washed, and came back seeing.Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blindsaid, ‘Is not this he who sat and begged?’” (John 9:1-8).
Application ~As the Creator and Sustainer of the universe (Colossians 1:15-18) Jesus Christ is omniscient (knows all things).He brought physical light into the eyes of this man who was born blind.While on earth He was the light of the world.He brought spiritual light to the lives of His followers.In His absence we are his lights to a dark and needy world.Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16).
