Pastor's Message

 

"Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (John 9:7)
He spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva and spread the mud on the man s eyes, saying to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which
means Sent). Then he went and washed and came back able to see. (John 9:6-7)

Jesus was asked by his disciple whether this man being blind from birth was because of the sin of this man or his parents. Jesus replied, Neither. Then he said that the man was born blind so that God s works might be revealed in him. Well, it comes to my mind that it would have been better if he was not born blind from the beginning. Honestly, I do not find a satisfying answer concerning the cause of human suffering. It is still hidden from me. However, I find from Jesus answer that we may hope for God's gracious works being revealed in such a situation. Jesus acted like a physician who gave the exact prescription for his blindness. He made a mud pack and spread it on his eyes and then told him what to do. The blind man did what he was told to do and experienced his eyes being opened. He said, I was blind, but now I see. What if he did not do what he was told to do? What if he was not healed even though he did what he was told to do? Then do we have to give up the idea that God works graciously through our suffering?

Come and join us at Jonesville UMC and let us think about it together.
