It was a divine meeting that forever changed a man’s life (in John 9). While others had walked by the blind man countless times, One decided to stop. While His disciples tried to make the man a theological case study, Jesus refused to do so. Instead, He wanted to make sure He fulfilled what the Father wanted and to be the Light, while He was still in the world. So, He did just that! He brought light to one who had never known anything other than darkness. Jesus spit on the ground and made mud with which He anointed the man’s eyes and told him to go wash in the pool of Siloam. The blind man was sent by the Sent One and came back seeing! Those around the man ranged from disbelief to unbelief in their reactions to him. His own parents basically distanced themselves from him so they wouldn’t be kicked out of the synagogue. The man himself was put out of the synagogue. And who came to see him? Jesus. The Lord came to the man and ensured that the man’s faith was in Him, the Son of Man. The man went from being blind, both physically and spiritually, to seeing with his eyes and his heart. He saw and understood Jesus. That’s why we celebrate Jesus on Easter. The Resurrection of Jesus not only opened the grave, it opened our eyes!
