March 18 / Proverbs 18 / John 9


Proverbs 18:4,21

The words we use are very important.

We need to be semantically, as well as theologically, sound.

May our words be few and full.

John 9:11

“Well then,” they said to him, “how did your eyes get opened?” “It was the man called Jesus!” he replied. “He made some mud; then He spread it on my eyes and told me to go to Siloam and wash. So I went, and washed, and I could see!”

God is faithful and His promises are all true.

Act on them as if they are true.

As Anselm said so long ago, we believe in order to understand, not the other way around. Understanding comes from belief. Believing is seeing. It is only when you step out in genuine faith that your eyes are opened and you finally see what has been there all along.

I love the simplicity of this verse:

“He told me what to do, I did it, and I was healed. I could see! BOOM!”

[my translation]

Jesus tells us what to do. Do it. And you will see.

Like never before.
