How were your eyes opened?
Date: March 22, 2020
Preacher: Rev. Nathan Hill
Scripture: John 9:1-41
So, the disciples see this blind man and think, he must be in this situation because he was really bad or his parents were really bad.
Jesus, however, shuts down their bad thinking. He says, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was born blind so that God’s works might be revealed in him.”
Let’s be careful - the second part of that is not suggesting that God makes people suffer so God can show off.
Rather, Jesus is reminding his disciples that God is glorified not when people are successful and at the top - but rather when lives are made whole.
