Sunday's Message: "What's Your Path?"

John 9
Pastor Jill Craig

This week at staff meeting I had to have Crystal read our scripture for our devotions because the words were blurry.  I’ve had to zoom my word documents to 130% so I can make out what I’m typing.  I’ve come to the realization that I can’t see.  I’m not sure if this loss of sight is caused by my recent pregnancy or my recent birthday.  Either way I am impatiently waiting for my eye dr. appt next week. I am more than ready to see life clearly again.

In our spiritual lives we go through this same process.  We can clearly see God working around us, we have joined Him in his mission.  Then suddenly things become less clear.  We get caught up in our preconceived ideas about religion, or maybe we forget the work and want to focus on the theological implications of the ministry that we are involved in.  We can kind of see God working, but we cannot discern what God would have for us to do.

This week we are looking at John 9.  The passage is about a man born blind, who receives his sight.  We will talk about the man’s journey from spiritual blindness to clearly seeing Jesus as the Son of God.  We will also talk about the disciples and the Pharisees, because they were blinded by their theology, were unable to see this man and rejoice in the miracle that Jesus did in his life.   My prayer is that we can move forward in our journey of faith together, with our eyes wide open to what God has in store for us, just like the once blind man.  And that we can break through the preconceived ideas of faith that may be blinding us from seeing how God in working in our lives and in the lives of those God has called us to serve.
