This week we will explore one more story in the New Testament.

Brief summary: A man given his sight after being blind from birth finds a stronger and stronger voice to tell his story of the One who healed him and proclaimed faith in JESUS. The author makes a direct appeal to the reader to reflect on her own story, her growing love for the LORD JESUS, and the power of her own story to draw others to the Savior! To lead unbelievers to trust in JESUS for eternal life and peace with holy GOD, and to encourage fellow believers to trust Him with their day-to-day joys, longings, and more importantly, their hard places. To ask the LORD to show the reader exactly how she can share her experiences – to not keep the Love of her life a secret, but to find her voice and tell her story!

THE BLIND MAN (𝘑𝘰𝘩𝘯 𝟿)
How long did this man struggle in darkness?
Describe his encounter with the LORD JESUS.
What questions did he face from bystanders? from the Jewish leaders?
How did he respond to all those questions?
What made his story so powerful?
In what struggle might the Savior long to meet you today – OR – what transformation has He already worked in your heart?
What words might you use to describe how He has changed your life?
How does hearing His story spoken from your own lips impact your heart?
With whom might He be nudging you to share your story? What about the Savior do you most want others to know?
As the LORD leads you, will you share your thoughts and reflections in the comments below?
