The following three questions are asked on a regular basis in today's world. Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good things happen to bad people? Why Did God Allow That To Happen? They were also asked 2,000 years ago. Let's take a look at Jesus' response in John 9:1-7.
Notice first that Jesus does not answer the first question: Why was this man born blind? He does answer the second question: What good can this tragedy produce? "
This story parallels the physical blindness of this man and the spiritual blindness of the Jews. The truth of our spiritual lives in turn parallels the reality of these teachers. We are all born blind. We are unable to see the real world, and the conflict between God and Satan. Therefore we miss the reality of Jesus bringing light into our darkness. Unless we allow the Savior to anoint our eyes, and to open them to the real world then; we will die in our sins. Are you blaming God or praising God today?
Beg the Lord to stop and help you. Do not let Him pass by! Pray that God will help us to see, so that we might behold the face of our Redeemer! Amen?
