The man said, “Point him out to me, sir, so that I can believe in him.”37 Jesus said, “You’re looking right at him. Don’t you recognize my voice?” 38 “Master, I believe,” the man said, and worshiped him. 39 Jesus then said, “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind.”
I love the way Jesus responds to the disciples: "you are asking the wrong question” He seems to say. How often do we look past Jesus? He wants us to see him
So good! I love that He answered them saying: “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.” What if we approached the world with this perspective? Such a redemptive and hopeful outlook! Instead of complaining about what’s wrong, we could look at the ills and problems of the world as opportunity for God to reveal himself.
We can’t pigeon hole God. He lives outside of our boxes. Darkness is an opportunity for me to use my light. Light would lose its value if there wasn’t a possibility of darkness.MIKE L:
Yes! So often we can get "dirt" in our eyes from having a perspective drawn from the world. When God is not boxed in by our own perspective, He is light to all those we encounter. And when we encounter Jesus, the light that is in us is unrecognizable. He gets all the glory.
