Thursday, May 25th: 1 Chronicles 25-27; John 9:1-23 ~ Deena

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Chronicles 25-27; John 9:1-23

Jesus answered, “It was not any sin of this man or his parents that caused him to be blind. He was born blind so that he could be used to show what great things God can do.

Sometimes we focus too much on our pains or problems that we miss seeing the glory of God. Realizing that God can bring good out of our hard times is also what allows us as Christians to make it through those times. God's power is so great that he can use common things like dirt and water to produce a miracle.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage1 Chronicles 28-29; John 9:24-41

John 9:4
We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.

A good reminder that we must do all we can for God now, and not wait.

John 9: 6 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 7 and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing.

For this miracle Jesus required obedience. The man could've scoffed and thought the whole thing was ridiculous. How is a little mud going to heal his lifelong blindness anyway?! What's the point? But, even though he did not understand everything behind Jesus' request, he obeyed. And then he was healed. What healing are we missing out on because we refuse to obey?
