“What is God’s story in your life?” – Part 2
“He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” John 9:25
I love this answer of the man that was physically blind. If only we could remember it whenever the Lord opens doors for us to witness to others! Often one of the things that stop us from telling others about the Lord is the fear of not knowing enough; we are too worried about what we don’t know, instead of focusing on the things that we do know.
Here in this story, the leaders of the Jewish people of that time had a very serious problem; they could argue about Scripture, its meaning, purpose and interpretation, but they couldn’t argue with a miracle. And this was not just a little miracle, but one that no one could deny: a man who was blind from birth could now see.
This man did not know much about the Messiah – he was not learned in the Scriptures, or the commentaries on Scripture, nor did he have all of his theology figured out. All he knew was that he was once blind but now could see! That was God’s story in this man’s life and it totally transformed him.
“But Moran, I was not physically blind!”, you may say. True, perhaps not physically, but spiritually, yes, we were all blind at one point in our lives. At our moment of confessing Yeshua as Lord and Messiah, God removed the veil from our eyes. We, who at one point could not see, just like the blind man, can now see. We now know God, and His plan; we can now see, read, and know that God and His word are true.
I closing, let me encourage us all, who were once blind but can now see, to not undermine God’s story in our lives. If God has indeed removed the veil from our eyes, we are now a new creation – we are changed people – and with this fact no one will be able to argue.
Let’s start with what we do know!
What is God’s story in your life today? Are you keeping it to yourself or are you sharing it with others?
