Summary: A CHALLENGE TO OBEDIENCE

  Study Tools

THE CURE

INTRODUCTION: ROMAN WRITERS AND JEWISH RABBIS RECOGNIZED THE MEDICINAL VALUE OF SPITTLE FOR HEALING CHRIST USED IT TO COMMUNICATE HIS INTENTION TO HEAL A BLIND MAN IF HE OBEYED HIS COMMAND.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT:

JOHN 9:2-3

CHRIST’S DISCIPLES ASKED AN IRRELEVANT QUESTION, A COMMON ISSUE TODAY. THEY HAD YET FULLY GRASPED THE REALITY OF UNIVERSAL SIN. ROMANS 3: 23 (NKJV) FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. THEIR QUESTION WAS THEOLOGICAL AND WOULD LEAD TO ENDLESS DISCUSSION AND ARGUMENTATION.

CHRIST USED SEVERAL MEANS TO MAKE HIS POINT (MARK 7:32-35, MARK 8:22-25).

IN EVERY INCIDENT CHRIST MANIFEST COMPASSION. SPECIFICALLY, IN JOHN 9: 2-3 HIS FOCUS WAS ON OBEDIENCE (NOW GO AND WASH YOUR EYES THAT YOU MIGHT SEE.)

OBEDIENCE GLORIFIES YOUR LORD AND PRODUCES JOY, PEACE AND COMFORT. A WISE BELIEVE WILL MAKE THE CHOICE TO OBEY.

DEUTERONOMY 30: 15-16 (NKJV) SEE, I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU TODAY LIFE AND GOOD, DEATH AND EVIL, IN THAT I COMMAND YOU TODAY TO LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD, TO WALK IN HIS WAY, AND TO KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, HIS STATUTES, AND HIS JUDGMENTS, THAT YOU MAY LIVE AND MULTIPLY; AND THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL BLESS YOU IN THE LAND WHICH YOU GO TO POSSESS.

PHILIPPIANS 4:9 THE THINGS WHICH YOU LEARNED AND RECEIVED AND HEARD AND SAW IN ME, THESE DO, AND THE GOD OF PEACE WILL BE WITH YOU.

APPLICATION: A CHALLENGE OF OBEDIENCE IS THE ISSUE!
