John 9:25 Just Tell What You Know

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

Talk is something that is easy for most people. For some people they can talk about anything and everything, regardless of how much or how little they know about the subject.

People like to talk in such a way that it makes them look like they know what they are talking about, even when they don’t. They will make up information, just so they will look intelligent on the subject.

After being healed of blindness, by someone he did not know, a man was being questioned by the Pharisees. He tells them that he doesn’t know whether the man is a sinner or not, but tells them that he was blind but can now see.

Believers are often questioned by non-believers about things God has done in their lives or in the lives of others. The bible is often questioned as to the truth of it.

Sometimes these questions are beyond the knowledge of the believer. Some will try to make up information to make it appear that know everything about God and His ways. This will often cause a bad argument and lead to no where.

Instead of talking about what one does not really know about, he should just say what he knows. Two things that every believer knows is what God has done in his life, and why he believes in Jesus.

There is no believer who knows absolutely everything about God or the Bible. Speaking the basic truth that one knows will keep one from falsehood and getting into a trap that the world tries to set for a believer.

As one speaks this way, he is revealing truth.

As a believer you have your own story to tell of what God has done in your life and what you know about God. There will be many things that you do not know or understand about God and the bible.

Do not try to appear super intelligent, but speak only what you know is truth in your life. The simplest thing you can say that no one can refute is your telling what God has done in your life. Anything beyond that can lead to falsehood or wrong motives.

Go and tell people what you know.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will tell others what God has done for you; that you will speak God’s truth at all times; that God will guide you in understanding His word to you; and that God will guide you to keep you from falling into the traps of this world.

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.
