“He replied, Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” John 9:25
The disciples saw a blind man. They wanted to know who sinned as to why the man was born blind. Jesus said neither, then healed the man. The Jewish leaders were upset and asked who it was that healed him. The man tells them that it was Jesus. The leaders were upset and stated that Jesus was a sinner. The man replies that he did not know anything about whether Jesus was a sinner or not, but just that at one time he could not see and now he can because of Jesus.
As you go through life as a witness for Jesus many people in this world will have thoughts for you. They will have some type of answer as to why Jesus is not real or cannot do what He said. The world will try to discourage you and break your faith in Jesus.
Often as a believer you will not allows have the answers to combat the thoughts of the world. You could be a new believer and have not studied the Bible enough to know many answers. Most believers will not have a degree from a college in Bible study. That is acceptable.
One thing you have as a believer is what Jesus did for you. You have your own testimony of what has happened in your life. Talk about that. Talk about what you know is true.
Do not allow yourself to be drawn into a debate that you really don’t know the truth about. It is the way the world tries to get you off focus of Jesus and to begin to doubt what has happened in your life.
You know that at one time you did not believe in Jesus and now you do. Why? Tell that story. Each person has had an answer to a prayer. Tell that story. Tell the things you know and don’t worry about the rest.
I pray today that God will do a work in your life that you and the world will see; that God will open doors for you to share with others what He has done for you; that God will fill you with His Holy Spirit to guide you; that you will have the boldness to tell what God has done in and through you; and that many will be drawn to Jesus through your testimony.
