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.


  1. "Go and wash in the pool called Siloam", he was told. He didn't ask to be healed but he obeyed. Why? He must have heard Jesus say that he was the light of the world and already believed. So he goes away from Jesus blind. The next time he's with Jesus he can see. Jesus asks the question we all need to hear, "Do you believe"? "Who is He"?he asks. He already believed, he just needed to put a face to his belief. "You have both seen Him and heard Him for I am He", Jesus tells him. Do you remember the first time your eyes were opened and you saw Jesus? Or have you ever really seen Him? What was this mans response? He did what I see every one else in the Bible doing; he worshipped! I don't think it was what we consider worship today. Not to say that we aren't worshipping on Sunday mornings. But when you truly see Jesus , something in your whole body mind spirit and soul responds and usually puts us in a prostrate position, if not physically it does inwardly. Jesus said to come, learn of me, and we need to do this. But at some point we need this encounter where we actually see Him. And we fall on our face and say; To You Lord Belong All Honor Praise And Glory Now And For Ever Amen.

  2. Ever get the impression that Jesus doesn't really care?

    "and when he found him"

    The man doesn't go seeking Jesus after he's thrown out of the synagogue, Jesus seeks him. He actively goes and looks for Him, and finds him.

    Let that sink in a minute - how much Jesus cares - how He takes action to go and comfort, help, heal, offer life.

    What will our response to that sinking in be?

    Will we, like this man, simply worship Him?
