The Sight-Giving Savior (15 of 33)
Series: Behold the Lamb
Ernest L. Easley
Now from the 9th chapter of John's gospel we learn that Jesus Christ not only provides salvation... but in doing so... provides sight! Did you know that you have two sets of eyes? Well... you do! You not only have eyes in your head... you have eyes in your heart!
When Blind Helen Keller was asked about being blind... she said, ''It is better to be blind and see with your heart than to have two good eyes and see nothing.'' Heart blindness is the worst form of blindness!
Now do you know what causes heart blindness? Why people cannot see spiritual things and know spiritual things? 2 Corinthians 4.3-4, ''But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.'' The Devil is a Deceiver ... and as a Deceiver... he has blinded the eyes of the non- believer! He is the producer of heart blindness!
But Jesus Christ is the producer of heart sight! He gives sight to the blind! And from John chapter 9... I want to tell you about The Sight-Giving Savior! It is one thing to see with the eyes in your head... it's something else to see with the eyes in your heart! For some of you may have 20/20 eyesight... but blind as a bat spiritually!
Well... God has something to say to all of us this morning about sight and it is found in John 9 as we discover together...
Now in thinking about The Sight-Giving Savior... the first thing we read about is... (1) This Man's Condition.
Now John tells us a couple of things about the condition of this particular man.
-he was blind. (v.1)
v.1, ''Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.'' Here is a grown man who had never seen a sun rise or a sun set. He had never seen the face of a loved one! He had never seen a flower!
