I Am Sure #likeJesus

“Of this one thing I am sure.  I used to be blind.  Now I can see!”

The formerly blind man, healed by Jesus, speaks to the Jewish leaders with conviction.  Certainty.

Of this one thing I am sure!

He’d experienced a miracle.  Jesus spit on the ground, made mud, wiped it on his eyes, and told him to go wash the mud (and his blindness) away.

He didn’t even see who healed him.  By the time he returned, able to see, Jesus had slipped away.

When confronted by the Pharisees and Teachers of the Law about who had healed him on the Sabbath, he ended up defending a man he had never seen.

Yet though he’d never seen Jesus, he knew He was real.  He’d heard His voice.  He’d felt His touch.  He’d experienced His power.  His life was forever changed!

“I used to be blind.  Now I can see.”

After the man is kicked out of the synagogue for defending Jesus and standing up the the Jewish leaders, Jesus finds him again.

He doesn’t recognize Jesus by sight.  He’s never seen Him before.  But he’s confident it is Jesus.  He knows His voice.

Of this one thing I am sure.

What is that for me?

Like the blind man, I believe in One I have yet to see.  Oh, but one day I will see Him.  And like the blind man, I want my experience of Him to be so real, so personal, that I too recognize His voice.

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am loved!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am forgiven!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am accepted!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am alive in Christ!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am His child!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am heaven bound!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am made new!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am more than a conqueror!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am His ambassador!

Of this one thing I am sure.  I am blessed beyond measure!

Well, that was ten things.  I wanted to think of one thing I am sure of, but I just couldn’t stop with one.

“Of this one thing I am sure.”

What’s your one thing?    …I’m not asking rhetorically 🙂
