Blind from Birth

From Series: A Light in the Darkness

John 9:8-12  (ID: 2521)

Jesus performed many miracles—including healing a man blind from birth—which the Bible calls signs and wonders. Like the blind man, we are entirely dependent on God to open our spiritual eyes. In this message, Alistair Begg teaches us how sin has affected everything about us, including our ability to see our own predicament. Through receiving the clear teaching of Scripture, though, we can we behold our true spiritual condition, desire salvation, and be saved.


8The neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar were saying, “Is this not the man who used to sit and beg?” 9Some said, “It is he.” Others said, “No, but he is like him.” He kept saying, “I am the man.” 10So they said to him, “Then how were your eyes opened?” 11He answered, “The man called Jesus made mud and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed and received my sight.” 12They said to him, “Where is he?” He said, “I do not know.”
