• The Man Born Blind Devotional

    John 9:1–7

    John Calvin comments, “We cannot always put our finger on the causes of the punishments which men endure.” We may not infer automatically that a person who is suffering has committed a specific sin. Sometimes the suffering is related to a sin, but not always. In either case, our duty is to help the suffering person in whatever way we are able and in whatever way will provide true assistance.

  • Division among the Pharisees Devotional

    John 9:8–23

    Over the course of John 9, the man born blind goes from knowing Jesus’ name to calling Him a prophet to confessing Him as Lord (9:10, 17, 38). This progression indicates a growth in the man’s understanding and faith. We should see the same growth in ourselves. The longer we follow Jesus, the more we should know Him and the more committed we should be to Him as our Lord. View Resource

  • Opening Blind Eyes Devotional

    John 9:24–33

    In today’s world, many people are claiming to have experienced miracles such as seeing the dead raised, the lame walk, and so forth. Yet when you press such people for evidence, it suddenly becomes hard for them to find proof. Let us not be easily swayed by reports of “miracles” even as we pray for God to bring healing through both ordinary and unexpected means. View Resource

  • Spiritual Blindness Devotional

    John 9:34–41

    God is under no obligation to save anyone, and those who harden themselves against Him have no claim on His grace. All of us must take care not to reject the light of Christ, lest we be blinded to His glory and cut off from His salvation. Of course, none whom He has saved will finally blind themselves to Him, but we prove that He has opened our eyes by continually turning to His light and seeking to be guided by it. View Resource
