Jesus Heals a Blind Man

September 18, 2008 Leave a comment

In verses 23-26, we find Jesus healing a blind man.

One question I had when I read this chapter last Saturday was why it took two steps to heal the man’s sight.

I believe that it is valid to conclude that Jesus will only heal us to the extent that we’re prepared to be healed.  Until I’m fully prepared to accept his healing, I will only be partly healed.

This is not to say that a person who is not healed has done anything sinful.  The Bible doesn’t teach this one-to-one correlation.  Job contradicts this conclusion.  Jesus himself contradicts this thought.

But if I’m not ready to be fully healed, Jesus won’t fully heal me.
