KEY SCRIPTURE: John 9:25 KJV” He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or not I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.”
The religious leaders asked the healed blind man to give glory to God and ‘forget’ about Jesus because He is a sinner. This man who suffered the pain, humiliation, and isolation of blindness for a number of decades said the following to them. John 9:25 KJV” He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or not, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.”
This scenario is still prevailing in our world today. The secular world attempts to tell humanity to forget about Jesus. They seek to portray a view of a Jesus who is not relevant, to modern man. This attempt has failed and will continue to fail.
The Bible says the gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. Rom 1:16. The gospel is producing results all over the world. Wherever people hear the gospel and believe it, they receive the power to become Sons of God. John 1:12 KJV” But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believed on his name:” Now the bible says all those who are born of God overcome the world, by their faith 1 John 5:4. Anywhere men receive the gospel in truth, they become overcomers. Many lives have been transformed. Multitudes are healed of all kinds of medically incurable diseases. Homes that were at the point of disintegration are now gloriously bouncing in love, and in appreciation of each other.
I met a young man whose future was been destroyed by alcohol addiction. This man could not practice his trained profession, because he could not control himself against his taskmaster, alcohol. HE gave his life to Jesus and was healed from a distressing sickness. Today, he is free from alcohol, and he is heartily serving the Lord, as much as perfectly engaged in his dream profession.
What would have been his present state if the gospel had not been given to him? How on earth could some say that the gospel is not relevant?
The gospel of our Lord Jesus produces the same transforming effect after two thousand years. This is the reality. I have experienced the great power and peace that the gospel gives. No one tastes it and remains the same.
THOUGHT: CHOOSING JESUS IS COMING INTO THE REALITY OF LIFE.
