TEXT: John 9: 1-5(KJV)
9:1. And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
9:2. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
9:3. Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
9:4. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
9:5. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Anglican Daily Fountain 11th March 2024 STUDY:

The passage for today presents a man born blind and living in great difficulty and pain. Usually, in Jewish thought, the blind must be suffering from the consequences of his or his parents’ sin. This view is expressed in the question of the disciples. In their thinking, the man was simply suffering for the sin of his parents because he was born blind.

According to Jesus, the man was not suffering for any sin although he did not state the source of the problem but pointed out that the problem of the man was destined to show forth the glory of God. Of course, this did not mean that God inflicted the problem on the man. The causes of human problems are many and sometimes complex. For instance, health problems of different kinds could be caused by diseases, misuse of the body, accidents, stress, birth defects arising from carelessness, and of course, attacks from enemies.

Jesus said no matter the problem, God’s supreme authority and power are exercised over our situations, bringing about peace, calmness, and joy; His glory is manifested and people will rejoice. If we are passing through any kind of difficult and seemingly irreversible problems – debt, poverty, joblessness, ill-health; barrenness, marital discord-we must keep praying because if we do, we will experience His divine intervention.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, mercifully intervene in my situation for a miracle, Amen.
