What Made Jesus To Heal The Man That Was Born Blind [1]

Monday 7th October 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- John 9:1-38

Topic:- What Made Jesus To Heal The Man That Was Born Blind [1]

Text:- John 9:1

Jesus met a blind man, as He was passing by. His disciples, who just recently had seen Him admonish the paralytic to “sin no more”, asked the Lord why this man had been born blind.
Our Lord not only answers their question and corrects their misjudgment, but as was so often the case, also used their question to expound on deeper theology.
He then spat on the ground, and made a paste out of the clay, and anointed the blind man’s eyes, then ordered him to go wash in the pool of Siloam. This he did, and came away seeing.
The Jews were angry because of this miracle, and interrogated the formerly blind man in the temple. He bore their questions with great dignity and honesty, and gradually became more bold in his answers, until the blinded Jews cast him out of the temple.
Jesus then found him again, and the blind man saw the Lord for the first time. He believed in Him, and worshipped Him.

A. Why was the man born blind? The scripture mentions two possibilities:
1. The disciples, upon seeing the blind man, thought that he must have suffered for the same reason that the paralytic, (whom the disciples had just recently seen healed) was lame, and they asked Jesus: Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? See John 9:2
2. This was an understandable question, since it is clear that our physical infirmities are sometimes caused by our own sins. In this case, however, the Lord corrected them, saying: Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. See John 9:3.

B. What is the tradition concerning the “eyes” of the man born blind?
1. When Christ spat on the ground, and made a paste out of the clay and anointed the blind man’s “eyes”, He actually created eyes for him. The services mention this wondrous detail. See John 9:6-7.
2. Many of Christ’s healings recounted in the Scriptures consists of TWO healings, sometimes in a different order of double healing.
3. The blind man not only had no eyes and had seen no man; he also did not know Christ. Jesus first healed his eyes, and upon meeting him again, healed the eyes of his soul. He who was formerly blind both in his physical eyes and those of his soul now could clearly see out of both.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, open my eyes of understanding and spiritual eyes henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
