Do you believe in the Son of Man?

We know that God has spoken to Moses, but as for this man, we do not know where he comes from.” The man answered, “Why, this is an amazing thing! You do not know where he comes from, and yet he opened my eyes. We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him. Never since the world began has it been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.” They answered him, “You were born in utter sin, and would you teach us?” And they cast him out.

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.
