1 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” 3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. 4 I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. (John 9:1-4)
Sin is not passed from parent to child (see Ezekiel 18:4, 20). Physical disability is not divine punishment for some previous wrong. This man’s blindness became a great opportunity for God’s power to be shown in him. Jesus healed his blindness, demonstrating He is the Son of God. If you struggle with a physical disability, the lesson is not to expect a miraculous healing. Rather, it is the assurance that by putting your faith in the Son of God, He will do something even greater than that; He will heal your soul of sin. In Christ, you can endure and prevail over your present struggle in the flesh (read 2 Cor. 12:7-10). Do God’s will now, and when all is said and done, you will have life eternal.
