He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Cause Or Effect?

Jhn 9:3-4, 3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. 4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.

The reason behind the blind man’s condition did not lie within himself or his parents. His blindness was not the cause, but rather the consequence of sin committed by our ancestor Adam. Adam’s sin had a profound impact on the entire human race, infecting all of us. However, despite this, God sent Jesus, the last Adam the seed of the woman who rose to bruise the head of the serpent. 1Jn 3:8 “…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Jesus came to rectify the injustice and restore what was broken. Through the miraculous healing of the blind man, God’s work would be revealed. It is God’s work to have faith in Christ (John 6:29), and the blindness of this man became an opportunity for faith to not only be produced in him, but also in others. In Acts 10:38, it is mentioned “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
