I Was Blind, Now I See

February 20, 2022 / John 9:1-25

About 4 out of every 10,000 children are born blind or declared blind before their first birthday. The man in John 9 is one of them. His physical blindness will serve as an illustration of mankind’s spiritual blindness. The greatest miracle was not the opening of his eyes but the opening of his heart to the Savior. It cost him everything to confess Jesus as the Son of God, but he was willing to do it because He saw the light. Only Jesus, the light of the world, has the power to give sight to the blind.
