When God Tests Our Faith (John 9:1-7)

Terrel Kesterson, August 27, 2017
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Jesus and His disciples came upon a man who had been blind from birth. The disciples asked
Jesus, “Who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” The disciples assumed
that the man’s blindness was a punishment from God for something he or his parents had done wrong. Jesus told them, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned.” God hadn’t punished the man
by allowing him to be born blind.

John 9:1-7

9:1 As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” Having said these things, he spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he anointed the man's eyes with the mud and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing. (ESV)
