God’s Vision

John 9:1-5 says, Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

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. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

There are two mentalities here in this scripture. One is man’s perspective, who when looking upon someone that is walking in darkness automatically judges through the scales or nature of condemnation. God gazes upon it as an opportunity to show His marvelous love and to break the curse of condemnation that man inherited from the garden, causing him to walk in darkness from the beginning. When man looks through the eyes of God into darkness, he will always see opportunity, love and light. Man then has the ability to rescue a dying world from darkness with the Spirit of faith, hope and Love.
