Weekday devotionals for Christians

Come to the Light

John 9:3-7
(3) Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
(4) I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
(5) As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
(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,
(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.

Here we see Jesus healing a blind man and I would like to point out a few interesting things concerning this:

1. The man never asked Jesus to heal him. 

2. The man’s healing was used to glorify God and to show that only Jesus has the Power to heal.

3. Jesus must work the works of His Father. Jesus has a job. His job is to help us.

4. He is the light of the world to lighten every one of us to the knowledge that He is the Son of God and God. We see in verse 6 that Jesus shows that He is the Son of God by doing only what God can do…healing the blind man. This man was blind from his birth. That means this man has never seen anything…ever. Think about it, never seeing a thing to seeing everything! That is what only God can do!

This was necessary for all of humanity to be able to tell the difference between Jesus Christ and others who claimed to be Christ, but were sinful men. Jesus’ work was 2 fold; to heal us and to help us recognize that He is the Son of God! How else would we be able to figure it out, other than by God doing the impossible? Guess what? He still does that today!

Jesus is still in the miracle working business of healing His people. Do you know that He still wants to prove Himself to you? Those of us who already trust and believe in Him still enjoy what He does on a regular basis for us, but if you are trying to decide or figure out who is the real God, then Jesus will prove Himself to you! All you need to do is seek Him and He will be found. Check out this verse: Acts 17:27
That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

There are over 27 verses that tell us specifically to “seek the Lord.” They are incredible! Here are just 2 more of the verses:

Deuteronomy 4:29  But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
1 Chronicles 16:10  Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

Will you seek the Lord? He is waiting for you!
