FirstBaptistKingston |
10/01/2017 |
Dr. Dale Darley - John 9:1-5 Point 1: A Physical Blindness -It is no accident, in light of the spiritual blindness of the Pharisees, that the next person the Lord Jesus encountered was physically blind! -The Scripture tells us that this man was a beggar, and that he had been blind from birth. Q. How would congenital blindness be viewed differently than other forms of blindness in Jesus’ day? Point 2: A Cognitive Blindness -Back in Jesus’ day, in that Jewish culture, there were some false beliefs that people held to that blinded them to this beggar’s situation, such as: 1) REVEAL ANSWER things only happen to “bad” people, and REVEAL ANSWER things only happen to “good” people. 2) All diseases, “accidents” and sufferings in life are the REVEAL ANSWER of an angry and vindictive God for the bad things that people do. 3) If you don’t do bad things, and if you don’t get God mad at you, then you will have a long and care-free, REVEAL ANSWER REVEAL ANSWER . Q. Suffering from such severe cognitive blindness, how would the people of Jesus’ day view this man’s physical blindness? Q. If a person today has the same cognitive blindness, how will they view the situations and circumstances of their lives? Point 3: A Spiritual Blindness -As debilitating and difficult as physical and cognitive blindness may be, spiritual blindness is far worse! -Human beings must have meaning or they will not REVEAL ANSWER . -In our society today, people have turned to two belief systems that provide no meaning at all: 1) Post-modernism 2) Atheism -The disciples were looking for blame, but but Jesus showed them the meaning they had missed in their spiritual blindness. Point to Ponder: Q. Are you looking for meaning in life, or ascribing blame?
