Anglican Daily Fountain 12th March 2024 (Devotional Today)

Welcome to Today’s Daily Fountain Devotional of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. Daily Fountain is a daily reading devotional for all Anglicans and Non-Anglicans to read, study, share and discuss the Word of God on a daily basis.

TOPIC: CREATIVE POWER OF CHRIST

TEXT: John 9: 6-23(KJV)
9:6. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
9:7. And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
9:8. The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9:9. Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
9:10. Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?

9:11. He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
9:12. Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.
9:13. They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind.
9:14. And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes.
9:15. Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see.

9:16. Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them.
9:17. They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
9:18. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
9:19. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?

9:20. His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind:
9:21. But by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself.
9:22. These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.
9:23. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

Anglican Daily Fountain 12th March 2024 STUDY:

STUDY: Our text reveals the creative power of Jesus in meeting the needs of men. We may notice that Jesus’ several miracles were performed by simply touching the sick (Mark 5: 25-29, 41-43) or speaking words of power (John 5:7-8). In the case of the man in our text, Jesus used a different method by mixing his saliva with clay to create a pair of brand new eyes for the man. Evidently, by this act, Jesus proved to the world that He is truly the creator of the universe and all things therein. The human body had been formed from dust (clay) which received life through the breath of life from God (saliva of Jesus – Genesis 2:7). For genuine Christians, this is ample proof that Jesus truly is the Son of God, the Almighty Creator and evidently through Him, all things were made (John 1:1ff).
This is divine assurance that God can meet the needs of His children through various means. You do not need to know which method He would use to address your situation. We must avoid syncretism that has found its way into the Church, Christ (God) never commanded us to use any particular method but to trust him. We must passionately present our case before him, and approach Him with confidence and faith to do his work in his way.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, please use any method you choose to intervene in my case, Amen.
