Jesus heard that they had cast him out, and having found him he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered, “And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?” Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and it is he who is speaking to you.” He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.
Skepticism about Jesus has been prolific since the days when he walked our dusty planet. Like the man who was healed of blindness I also sometimes marvel how some can blow off the story so casually. Many of the things written in the gospel accounts are unlike anything written anywhere. Yet the learned among us, like those who grilled the once blind man, are still indignant that simple people understand things that have escaped their understandings.
I love how Jesus comes to the once blind man. Seeing Jesus he does not even know that it was the man standing before him that healed him. The response of the man is so endearing. Once he understands who is speaking to him he responds with worship. Thanksgiving is the hallmark of faith. Those who have believed in Jesus understand the extent of their spiritual blindness and fall down in worship because they can now see.
I once was blind and now I see. Praise you Lord Jesus Christ.
