Now it was a Sabbath day when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes. So the Pharisees again asked him how he had received his sight. And he said to them, “He put mud on my eyes, and I washed, and I see.” John 9:14-15.
There are many ways to see the Light. But would you allow someone passing by, to put mud on your eyes and expect to see? Jesus proclaimed, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12b.
The wonder of seeing truth, comes when we read scripture over and over. To see deeply is more than seeing the form, and seeing the truth of God. The delight of a painter who sees treasures the many hues in a green tree is the same as understanding a scripture after reading many times. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12.
Oh, God of Light, show me your truth. Humble me to learn your Word and understand Your Way. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen. May we say with Nathanael, “You are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” John 1:49.
Open my eyes, that I may see, Glimpses of truth thou hast for me. A hymn.
Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation. Psalm 25:5a.
So for the second time, they called the man who had been blind and said to him, “Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.” He answered, “Whether He is a sinner I do not know. One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” John 9:24-25.
