John 9:8-9 ” His neighbors and those who had formally seen him begging asked, ‘Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?’ Some claimed that he was. Others said, ‘No, he only looks like him.’ But he himself insisted, ‘I am the man.’ “

This blind man had become a permanent fixture as hundreds of people past by him daily…his presence & poverty just a momentary observation as they hurried by. But then suddenly, here was this same man healed & able to see clearly, and the people couldn’t believe their own eyes. The Ministry of Jesus was one of Restoration & Renewal…or as Isaiah 35:5-6 foretold, the eyes of the blind will be opened, the ears of the deaf unstopped, the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will sing for joy. This once blind man best summed it up for all the doubters when he exclaimed, “I am the man that was once blind, but now I can see.”
