The Seeing Go Blind -The Blind See

John chapter 9 is a about a man who was blind from birth healed to see on a Sabbath day.  The pharisees question him but never connect the dots that Jesus is indeed the Messiah.  Part of the messianic expectation was that deaf ears would hear and blind eyes would see (Is. 29:18, 35:5, 42:6-7) yet that escaped the Jewish leadership.  On the other hand, take a look at the progression of faith of the healed man ousted from the temple.   He starts in vs. 11 by stating his name ‘Jesus’, upon further questioning, declares him a  prophet, piecing more together he says in vs. 33 ‘one from God’, then Jesus reveals himself as ‘Son of God’, and finally he responds in vs 38 ‘I believe and worships’.  Lord, we give you our stubborn hearts.  Help us to see You today!
