Turns out the formerly blind man wasn’t the only blind person in Jerusalem. The religious leaders had the openness of a locked bank vault. A bona fide miracle had occurred, but did they seek to meet the One who caused it? They saw nothing but themselves and their religion. And because the leaders refused to see, “They cast him out” (John 9:34).
The was-blind man found himself kicked out of the temple with no one to defend him. “When Jesus heard what had happened, he found the man” (v. 35 NLT). You see Christ was not about to leave the man unprotected. You can expect him to do the same for you. Others may disown you. Your family may reject you. The religious establishment may dismiss you. But Jesus Christ? He will find you; He will guide you. Remember, friends, you are never alone.
