|He Made the Blind to See|
"He Made the Blind to See", this is the theme of todays Friday, Dec. 17, 2004, broadcast starting at 2100 CET on 5,775 kHz, via European Gospel Radio:
This is the third sermon on John chapter 9. An unnamed blind beggar is receiving his sight. What was the reason? According to Jesus, He sought out this beggar “in order that the works of God should be made manifest in him”.
Astounding contrasts: The Pharisees, in their carnal mind, excommunicated this formerly blind beggar, because he did not want to deny that Jesus was from God. These graduates from honored seats of learning were corrected by this untrained new disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.
On the other hand we see what Divine grace can do. It brings a beggar to the feet of the Savior. It gives him a wisdom that exceeds the wisdom of the Pharisees. His logic is impeccable: “One thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see”. He said of Jesus: “If this man were not of God, he could do nothing”. The beggar refused to be intimidated by the scribes and Pharisees. He knows that the eyes of his understanding have been opened by God. As soon as the Pharisees had cast out the beggar, Jesus sought him out and made Himself known to him. God set the stage and then the Pharisees performed their predictable evil work according to their evil nature, and as a result, everything fell in place according to God’s plan.
The Lord Jesus asked him, “Dost thou believe on the Son of God”? And he said, “Lord, I believe”, and he worshipped Him. It is a demonstration of God’s irresistible grace. Then Jesus said, “For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see, and that they which see (or claim to see) might be made blind”.
What is the difference between the two groups of people? Find out by listening to the sermon.
