JANUARY 10 – SEE

1/10. John 9:8-25
His neighbors and others who knew him as a blind beggar asked each other, “Is this the same man — that beggar?” 9 Some said he was, and others said, “No, but he surely looks like him!”And the beggar kept saying, “I am the same man!” 10 They asked, “Who healed you? What happened?” 11 He told them, ” the man they call Jesus made mud and smoothed it over my eyes and told me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash off the mud.’ I went and washed, and now I can see!” 12 “Where is he now?” they asked.”I don’t know,”
he replied. 13 hen they took the man to the Pharisees. 14 Now as it happened,
Jesus had healed the man on a Sabbath. 15 he Pharisees asked the man all about it. So he told them, “He smoothed the mud over my eyes, and when it was
washed away, I could see!” 16 Some of the Pharisees said, ” this man Jesus is
not from God, for he is working on the Sabbath.” Others said, “But how could
an ordinary sinner do such miraculous signs?” So there was a deep division of
opinion among them. 17 Then the Pharisees once again questioned the man who
had been blind and demanded, ” his man who opened your eyes — who do you
say he is?” he man replied, “I think he must be a prophet.” 18 The Jewish
leaders wouldn’t believe he had been blind, so they called in his parents. 19 they asked them, “Is this your son? Was he born blind? If so, how can he see?” 20
His parents replied, “We know this is our son and that he was born blind, 21 but
we don’t know how he can see or who healed him. He is old enough to speak for
himself. Ask him.” 22 They said this because they were afraid of the Jewish
leaders, who had announced that anyone saying Jesus was the Messiah would be
expelled from the synagogue. 23 That’s why they said, “He is old enough to
speak for himself. Ask him.” 24 So for the second time they called in the man
who had been blind and told him, “Give glory to God by telling the truth,
because we know Jesus is a sinner.” 25 “I don’t know whether he is a sinner,”
the man replied. “But I know this: I was blind, and now I can see!”
SEE
when Jesus came into our life he removed the blindness of sin and now we can see. Praise the Lord that we can see.
