Thoughts on the Gospel of John (68)

I must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; the night is coming when no-one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had said these things, he spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. And he said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
John 9:4-7.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (68)
The man born blind gave the Lord the opportunity to carry out the works of God on him. In His love Jesus could not rest, so long as He was surrounded by people with dire needs. But when He left the world, it would be night, and no-one could continue His work.

Does no-one do the work of God today? In a certain sense, yes. Since the ascension of Jesus to heaven many have gone out into the whole world to preach the gospel. People are being called out of the world to receive eternal life and heavenly blessings, but eternal salvation does not free the world today from all suffering. That will not happen until the millennium, when “the night”, during which Christ is rejected, has passed.

For the healing of the blind man the Lord prepared a special eye ointment. The saliva symbolised the Lord’s effective power. The earth indicates that He Himself became Man. It is also significant that the pool where the healing took place was named “Sent!” This teaches us that if we grasp by faith the humble Man Jesus Christ, who is a Person of the Godhead sent by God to save and bless sinners, then light will enter our lives.

(to be continued next Sunday)

Today’s reading: Ecclesiastes 7:1-14 · Mark 6:7-13

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.


Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

ANOINTED TO BE AN INTERCESSOR

Prayer is an ordinance of God. It should be noted that both Christians and non-Christians pray. The prayer that God will answer however is one from a sincere outpouring of the heart to God.
