My favorite passage in today’s reading was the healed blind man’s response to the religious leaders about not knowing who Christ was because they did not know where He came from. The man’s response is found in John 9:30-33, 30 The man answered, “Now this is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. 31 We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly man who does his will. 32 Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. 33 If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.” This is a pretty obvious assessment of the situation, especially coming from a seemingly uneducated man. Sometimes the obvious is simply the right answer. We tend to complicate things too much. If we simply trust in God and listen for His “voice”, we will know the things that are from Him and those that are not.
