In John 9:1-12, we read about the transformative power of Jesus’ love and grace as he healed a man who was born blind. This story reminds us that just as Jesus healed the man in the story, he can also heal us and open our eyes to the truth of his love and grace. Through prayer and reflection, let us offer our praises and thanks to God for his blessings in our lives and for his healing power.
We have sinned. We put our heads in the sand. We ignored people in need. We make false assumptions and fail to be kind. We are in need of forgiveness. Good news! Our God is a merciful God. God does not punish, hold grudges, or keep score. When you suffer, God weeps. When you sin, God forgives. When you lose your way, God comes running.
Thanks be to God for a love like that.
