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

1And as he passed by, he saw a man blind from his birth. 2And his disciples asked him, saying, Rabbi, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he should be born blind? 3Jesus answered, Neither did this man sin, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. 4We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5When I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 6When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed his eyes with the clay, 7and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent). He went away therefore, and washed, and came seeing. (ASV)
