Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind."
What does Jesus do when He hears how the religious leaders have shunned the man whom He had healed?
Jesus goes looking for Him. He healed his blind eyes and now He will bring healing and life to his broken spirit.
Finding him, Jesus asks - Do you believe in the Son of Man?
The man wants to know more and Jesus reveals Himself to him.
Then the man said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him.
This is such a beautiful story. For it contains elements of every person’s need and Jesus’ compassion and power to respond.
Jesus opens the man’s eyes. And for the first time in his life he is able to see the beauty of the earth. To look at the face of his parents!
Here is a look into the very heart of Jesus as He seeks out one lonely person and establishes a relationship with him. This is a drama re-enacted in the life of every student of Jesus.
He comes to us with power to open our eyes. And we see for the first time the beauty of God’s eternal kingdom. We look into the face of Jesus and see our Heavenly Father.
We follow Jesus – believe in Him and worship Him - because He loves us and cares about what is going on in our lives too.
We come to understand His power. To open our eyes, change us, and lead us to become more like Him.
We each have our part to play in Heaven’s Drama. Jesus, the Teacher and we, His daily students.
