vs. 13: They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind. vs. 15: Therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. “He put mud on my eyes,” the man replied, “and I washed, and now I see.” vs. 18: The Jews still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents. vs. 20, 21: “We know he is our son,” the parents answered, ” and we know he was born blind. But how he can see now, or who opened is eyes, we don’t know.
The evidence was there. The witnesses were there, parents and son. Still, the Pharisees chose to say it did not happen. Clearly, the man was healed, but they could not acknowledge anything beyond their legalistic ideals. How far from the love and knowledge of God they had strayed.
It happens today. Lives are changed. Sinners, who love sin and its surrounding darkness, come into the light of salvation and become children of God. The evidence is there. The witnesses are many to the miraculous saving grace of God, yet there are those who will not believe. That is between them and God. We keep on, bringing the good news, sharing our testimonies, presenting the evidence for the truth of God.
