John 9:7 ” Go, He told him, wash in the Pool of Siloam. So the man went and washed and came home seeing.”

As the story of the man born blind develops, we watch as his journey of faith moves forward. It starts with him simply obeying Jesus’ command to, “Go and wash.” and ends in him being able to see clearly enough to, for the first time in his life, walk home by himself. Though he referred to Him as, “The man they call Jesus.” he chose to trust Him. Later, as the Pharisees interrogated him, he called Jesus a Prophet, drawing from his Hebrew knowledge from Deuteronomy 18:15 and acknowledging that this man was indeed special. Finally during his 2nd interrogation with the Pharisees the man had heard enough of their slanderous accusations about the man who had healed him & instead he schooled them. “One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see! We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners. He listens to the godly man who does His Will. Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, He could do nothing.” After the man had been thrown out of the Temple, Jesus found him and this man’s faith went from general confidence to joyful acceptance of Jesus as his personal Savior. It best summed up when he professed, “Lord, I believe.”
