“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.”
John 9: 3
The Creator & the Healer
After saying this, He spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. 7 “Go,” He told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” (this word means “Sent”). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.
John 9: 6-7
In the above passage we see that Christ cured a man who was blind. However Jesus used a method of healing that would have in the eyes of the world been strange and foolish.
Jesus did not need to use a physical material to bring healing. All He needed to do was, to speak the word and His word was powerful enough to bring sight to a blind man. However here we see Jesus as the Creator, whose act was the same as that of God who created man from the dust of the earth, in the garden of Eden.
Here Jesus created a pair of brand new eyes in this blind man by using the same supernatural method. All this did not happen randomly. This man’s handicap was not an accident but was part of God’s plan for his life. He was born visually impaired so that the works of God might be displayed in him.
Lesson for us today is, God’s ways are higher than our ways. Let us not limit God to what He is able to do. He is a supernatural Creator who is the same yesterday today and forever. what appears foolish to the eyes of the world might be a method used by God to bring glory to His name.
Let’s have an open mind to receive God and allow Him to work in our lives the way He wants to, so that through our lives He will be glorified.
Dear Lord, today I bow before Your greatness and power. You are truly the Creator, the One who is the same yesterday today and forever. May Your power open every blindness and make me see Your purpose in me.
