Sight Restored - May 24, 2022

Christians love to sing, “Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see.”

Blind. Blind to the promise of eternal life. Blind to the provider of life. We relate to the words of the was-blind beggar. “One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” (John 9:25 NIV). His story is our story. Perhaps that’s why John was in no hurry to tell it. He needed only twelve verses to describe how water became wine. But he dedicated a whopping forty-one verses to depicting how Jesus found, and cured, and matured the blind man.

Why? Among the explanations is this one: what Jesus did physically for the blind beggar, he desires to do spiritually for all people—to restore our sight. Remember my friends, you are never alone.
