Discussion for John 9

    Hello Peter; It is interesting, and something to wonder about, that men are able to be indifferent to and deflect the spiritual and the truth working right in their midst! "...for flesh and blood has not not revealed it to you, but my Father in heaven." So the LORD is righteous who takes vengeance on the wickedness of men, because He KNOWS what we really are inwardly, and all have a conscience!

    Very interesting encounter with the blind man and the members of his community. In spite of all the miracles, many could not still see that Jesus is incarnate God. This is another prophecy fulfilled that His people will know Him not (Jeremiah 3: 20). Also see John 1: 11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

    April- The very definition of God's grace is UNmerited favor... No matter how broken and sorry one could be, only believing Christ took one's place (God seeing Christ's past instead of one's own; Christ's righteousness instead of one's own works) brings salvation! Praise God :) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift [no work can add] of God:"Eph

    I think of Amazing grace when I read this chapter, and it makes me wonder,if we say now we see, could we actually be blind?, for it takes every day commitment and understanding, to be sinless,I really dont know of one person in exsistence that is PERFECT, so Thank YESHUA for having grace and patience,I try and ask to help me be humble,and thank him for all I have in my life,I'm nothing without him

    Dave: The blind man went to the pool to wash he was blind he didn't see Jesus. Read verse 6-7

    David - not everyone learns at the same speed. God knows this for He created us. Jesus sought this man out because He knew this of him and also KNEW he would - believe - given just one more sentence of teaching.
