John 9:25 What Do You Know?

Thinking

He answered, “Whether he is a sinner I do not know. One things I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” John 9:25

One day, on a Sabbath, Jesus came up to a man who was blind. He healed him and then left. The leaders of the Law were upset and tried to find out what had happened and blamed the man who had been blind for following someone who was not a believer. The former blind man said that he did not know anything about the man being a sinner or not, but knew that he had been blind and now he could see.

At times when a policeman comes to a scene of a crime, he must ask questions of what had happened. He will ask anyone who was at the scene or connected with that location what they had scene and know about the situation. He will often ask people who knew the suspect or the victim what they know about the situation and each other.

The people he asks can only state one thing, and that is what they know. Without telling a lie, no one can say anything other than what they know and have directly experienced.

Some people will make judgment calls upon someone else based off of what another person has said. Or they will speak of another person’s experience rather than their own.

Every believer has his own experience as to what God has done in his life. He has his own experience of who Jesus is in his own life.

One of the great things about God is that He can show Himself to each person in a different way. God does not work exactly in the same way every time, with each person. One time God spits in mud to put some mud on the eyes to heal the person, while the next person, Jesus just says the word to heal him.

You have your own testimony of what Jesus has done in your life. It is unique to you. No one add or take away from what you have experienced with God in your life. You know exactly how God has changed your life.

Think about how Jesus has touched you. Now you must go and tell others what He has done in your life. Do not argue with others about Jesus, just say what He did.

I pray today that you will know how Jesus has touched you; that you will not fear telling others of what Jesus has done; that you will believe in Jesus regardless of what others think; that you will tell others about Jesus.
