Series: The Gospel of John
Speaker: Jason Williams
In this sermon, we looked at how spiritual blindness keeps us from seeing the works of God in our lives and in the world around us. In John 9, Jesus heals a man who was born blind. When Jesus’ disciples assume that this man’s blindness is due to the sins of his parents, Jesus tells them that the blindness was allowed by God so that His works might be displayed. The Pharisees hear that Jesus healed the man of his blindness and, with arrogance and self-righteousness, they accuse Jesus of breaking God’s Law on the Sabbath and completely miss an opportunity to see the works of God. Jesus healed the man’s physical blindness in order for God’s light to open our spiritual eyes to see His works and glorify Him. In order to avoid suffering from the same spiritual blindness of the Pharisees, we must guard our hearts against self-righteousness and open our eyes to the mighty works of God.
