Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
John 9: 39
Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”
In this chapter, the story of Jesus opening the blind man’s eyes is told by John. When it happened, the Pharisees began to question the man who had been healed. He said he didn’t know how or who did it, but he did know that he was blind, but now he could see. As he spoke with them, they became so furious with the healed man that they threw him out of their midst.
The fact that this man was healed did not bring joy to any of these religious Jews. They were upset that someone greater than they had appeared among them, and their authority was being threatened. When Jesus heard of it, He went to the man, and the man believed in Jesus. Jesus said, “I’ve come to open blind eyes and make those who can see blind.” Sometimes if we’re not careful, we begin to think of ourselves as more than we are. We can think that we are somehow the reason for our success or ability to see. Yet only Jesus can truly make folks see. And if we fail to understand the source of our victory, very quickly, we can lose that victory. Because only “Jesus Opens And Closes Eyes.”
Thank You that when my eyes were blind spiritually, You opened them. I’m glad that You’re so powerful that even if my eyes were physically blind, You could open them as well! Amen
