Meeting Jesus: Faith – A Kind of Seeing

Sunday 24 October 2021
Sermon by Ps. Ben Hooman

Faith is actually a kind of seeing. And it is this man’s famous testimony as we will see later in this chapter. “Once I was blind, but now I see,” has a double meaning. “Jesus performed a miracle in which I came to see” and “Jesus performed a miracle in which I came to believe.”

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 spit 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”. So, he went and washed and came back seeing.”
