The blind man sees

     None are so blind as those who do not want to see!!
This saying is so true today and so true 2000 years ago. As I visit the markets to spread the word of God to the general public, I perceive that the ignorance of God is largely by choice.

       The Lord from heaven found the same problem among the studious and strict Jews of His day. He gave eyes to the man born blind ( John 9 ). The people couldn't believe it. Then, because He healed the man on the Sabbath, they would not believe it!
        The sad,sad part of the story is that by rejecting the Lord, they in fact were more blind than the man without eyes. The blind man had come to believe Jesus to be the Son of God and thus received sight twice - natural sight and spiritual sight.  The intelligent and educated Pharisees were left blinded, in the darkness of not knowing the true Messiah.

Read John 9 carefully and note  the moral of the story at the end. Ours today is the free choice to receive the Lord Jesus and be blessed  with spiritual sight, or we may choose to reject Him, choosing darkness in life and eternity.
