JOHN 9:1-41 *2017*

 “WHILE I AM IN THE WORLD, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.”

 

Eyeglasses, Contact lenses, Night Vision Glasses, Or one may include Magnifying Glasses are used to enhance or improve one’s vision.

 But to those who are blind, they only see darkness. Blindness is darkness.

In ancient times, blind people are hopeless, helpless people because there are people to treat them as sinners. They are not important in the community.

Unseen by others, Jesus sees the man born blind. Jesus gives him the gift of sight to reveal that he is the light of the world

Now healed, the neighbors of the man once blind, remain blind because they fail to acknowledge Jesus as the light of the world. Instead of focusing “who heals him?, they question instead the credibility of Jesus, who is a sinner for violating the Sabbath law.

Jesus does not need eyeglasses, contact lenses or  even a magnifying glass to see the need of the blind man. His vision is excellent. Jesus looks at the blind man through the eyes of LOVE.
