Occasionally, we will reprint prior devotions that now reflect on the coming lectionary texts. This is a reprint from a devotion originally published on September 7, 2013.
Reading: Isaiah 42: 7; John 9: 32-33 (the Gospel text for Sunday is John 9: 1-42)
The prophet Isaiah predicted that there would be a man who could make the blind see. When Jesus came to earth and started his ministry, he healed the blind. But some did not believe that a man could do that. When they heard of Jesus' healing, they did not believe. Perhaps they should have not have been do astonished. Isaiah predicted that the Son of Man would make the blind see.
In the same way, people today who are unbelievers should have their eyes opened. If they do not believe, they should be shown that Jesus did come to earth and has given us eternal life. Their eyes need to be opened to the light of Christ. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
