What A Savior We Serve!

Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was born blind so that God’s works might be revealed in him.  We must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work.  John 9:3-4

The man born blind did not ask for healing, did not approach Jesus and plead for healing, and did not know healing was going to happen!  Jesus can surprise us with healing and other’s will ask, “How did you get well so quickly?”  Our best response is, “My Savior named Jesus gave me healing.”

You see, the man born blind could not see Jesus and yet knew who had healed him!  The blind man responded to what Jesus told him to do and went and washed in the pool of Siloam, which was the same water the temple used for making wine for the ceremonies and for drinking.  The blind man responded to Jesus and not only saw the light of day but he also received the Light of the World, salvation in Jesus.  Light of our King of Kings shone in his heart and mind!

Parallel this Scripture with John 13:30, as Judas takes the bread dipped in the wine which Jesus gives to Judas the betrayer and leaves, ‘…he (Judas) immediately went out and it was night.’  Did Judas realize that he’d stepped into utter darkness?  Certainly!  Do we?  Absolutely.  Can you return to the Savior? Yes, His readiness takes you back, will love you, wants to keep you close, and give you total forgiveness is explained in Jesus’ story of the Prodigal child returning to the Accepting Savior.

Jesus heals you each time you return to Him, but not only that — He heals even before you ask!  What a Savior we serve!!
