One Thing I Do Know
“He then answered, ‘Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.’”
(John 9:25, NASB)
Here we see Jesus’ miraculous healing of a man blind since birth. The Pharisees are intent on charging Jesus with violating Jewish law by performing work on the Sabbath. First, they interrogate the blind man’s parents. Then they question the man about Jesus’ actions. They say, “Give glory to God; we know that this man is a sinner.” He responds to them, “Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” In truth, the blind man knew many things. He knew: (1) the pain and suffering of blindness, (2) a world void and empty of light, (3) his mother’s face and smile by touch, (4) a storehouse of information about the world in terms of shapes, sounds, temperature and texture, and (5) the bondage of begging daily just to survive.
Doors were closed to him because he was blind. The isolation of blindness kept the world locked out and kept him locked in. Others had what he did not. He experienced poverty, lack and insufficiency until he met Jesus. In Jesus, he found sight, new life, and the door to a world of abundance. Reading on, we see that he confidently and boldly confronted his interrogators over their lack of faith and belief. He went so far as to ask them if they wanted to become Jesus’ disciples also. This man may not have known many things, but one thing he knew, which the Pharisees did not. He knew Jesus. Jesus gave him not only sight, but also eternal life!
Child of God, what are you certain about? I encourage you to be certain about this: Jesus is who he said he is, and he can do all the things his Word says he can do. This one thing, I do know!
Father, thank you for your Son Jesus. Jesus, I thank you for healing and restoration. Holy Spirit, remove every area of blindness in my life. I may not know many things, but this one thing I do know – I need you Jesus. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
