“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 9:39

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I entered this world to render judgment –

to give sight to the blind;

and to show those who think they see,

that they are blind.”

.

– John 9:39 (NLT)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus did not come to condemn the world

but to save it.

His presence among us, however,

already involves a judgment,

because each of us has to take a stand

on whether to reject or accept Jesus.

.

Christ’s coming

implies the fall of some

and the salvation of others.

.

In this sense, we will fall into one of two categories

.

…on the one hand, the humble of heart,

who recognise their failings

and who go to Jesus

in search of forgiveness

– these will receive the light He is speaking of;

.

…on the other hand, those who are satisfied with themselves

and think that they do not need Christ

or His word

– these say they see

but in fact they are blind.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, thank You for making me see Your truth.

Please grant me the grace to live it.
