Summary: WE NEED TO LET CHRIST TOUCH OUR EYES, SO THAT WE CAN SEE, WHEN CHRIST YOUR EYES YOU WILL HAVE A NEW WALK AND TALK, YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

JESUS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

JOHN 9:1-7 (quickview) 

AS I BEGIN TO LOOK AT THIS CHAPTER OF SCRIPTURE, MY MIND RUNS BACK TO WHEN I WAS RUNNING AROUND IN DARKNESS. YOU SEE, THE WORLD I WAS LIVING IN WAS DARKNESS TO THESE EYES OF MINE. THE PLACES THAT I WOULD GO WAS DARK PLACES. THE THINGS THAT I WAS DOING WAS DONE IN THE DARKNESS. THE THINGS I WOULD SAY WAS SAID IN THE DARKNESS.

OH, BUT ONE DAY HE TOUCHED ME AND MADE ME WHOLE. HE BROUGHT ME OUT OF DARKNESS INTO THE MARVELOUS LIGHT. JESUS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

NOW THE THINGS I USED TO DO, I DON’T DO ANY MORE. THE PLACES I USED TO GO, I DON’T GO ANY MORE, THE WALK I USED TO WALK I DON’T WALK ANY MORE. WHEN HE TOUCH YOU, YOU WILL HAVE A NEW WALK, NEW TALK, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE WHERE YOU ARE WALKING.

I’M SO GLAD THAT JESUS PASSED BY ONE DAY AND HEALED THIS BODY OF MINE, JUST LIKE HE DID THE MAN AT THE POOL.

I HEARD THE WORD OF GOD SAYING THERE IN ST. JOHN 9:1 (quickview) ,’ AND AS JESUS PASSED BY, HE SAW A MAN WHICH WAS BLIND FROM BIRTH’. I WONDER HAVE HE PASSED BY YOUR WAY? HAVE HE OPENED YOUR EYES? IF HE HAS OPENED YOUR EYES SOMEBODY WILL SEE A CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.

OH, BUT THERE WILL BE SOME WHO WILL WANT TO KNOW WHY, OR WHAT CAUSED YOU TO CHANGE. OH CHURCH, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TELL THEM, IT WAS NOBODY BUT JESUS. [ JESUS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE].

YOU SEE, THE DISCIPLES WANTED TO KNOW WHO DID SIN, THIS MAN OR HIS PARENTS, THAT HE WAS BORN BLIND. THEY WANTED TO DISCUSS WHO IS AT FAULT, WHO IT IS THAT SINNED?

BUT JESUS DOESN’T GIVE THEM THE ANSWER THEY WANTED. HE SAYS THE IMPORTANT THING IS NOT TO PROBE AROUND IN THE PAST AND TRY TO FIND OUT WHO IS GUILTY. THE THING TO DO IS TO CURE THE MAN. YOU SEE, IT MAY BE TRUE THAT AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS WORTH A POUND OF CURE.

BUT AFTER A MAN IS SICK, THE IMPORTANT THING IS TO GET THAT POUND OF CURE FOR HIM. YOU SEE, IT WAS NOT THE QUESTION OF WHO SINNED FOR ROMAN 3:23 SAYS,’ ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. IF CHRIST HAS NOT TOUCHED YOUR EYES, YOU ARE NOT SEEING. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE TODAY IN CHURCHES that are BLIND AND DON’T KNOW IT.

IF YOU WERE SEEING TODAY, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND PAUL WHEN HE SAYS, ’ WHEN YOU ARE BORN AGAIN, THE OLD THINGS PASS AWAY BEHOLD ALL THINGS BECOME NEW.

THERE ARE MANY FOLK TODAY STANDING IN THE LIGHT OF THE WORD OF GOD WHO SAY,’ WHY DOESN’T SOME ONE TURN ON THE LIGHTS? THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT PILATE DID. HE ASKED, ’ WHAT IS TRUTH? AS HE WAS STANDING RIGHT IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ONE WHO SAID, ’ I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. [ JESUS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE].

WE NEED TO LET CHRIST TOUCH OUR EYES, SO THAT WE CAN SEE. I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO NOTICE HERE, CHRIST TOUCHED THIS MAN ALTHOUGH THE MAN STILL COULD NOT SEE HIM. THEN JESUS ASKED HIM TO GO WASH AND THE MAN OBEYED. [ JESUS MAKES THE DIFFERENCE].

THIS GOSPEL SETS FORTH THE DEITY OF CHRIST, IT ALSO SETS FORTH JESUS AS MAN. JESUS HAD JUST CLAIMED HIS DEITY AND NOW HE TOUCHES THE BLIND MAN, MAN TO MAN.

THE BLIND MAN MUST OBEY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IF HE IS TO SEE. THE LORD SENT HIM TO THE POOL WHICH IS CALLED SILOAM, AND JOHN MAKES A POINT OF TELLING US SILOAM MEANS ’SENT’. EVEN THE NAME OF THE POOL BEARS TESTIMONY THAT JESUS IS SENT FROM THE FATHER.
