Scripture: John 9:35-41
When blindness is healed, revelation comes and worship is released. Jesus said in verse 39, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.” The Pharisees were the leaders. And when they heard that statement they said, “Are we blind also?” Jesus’ answer was about transparency and acknowledgement. He said, “If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, ‘We see.’ Therefore your sin remains.” What was Jesus saying to the leaders of His generation? He was saying, “There is no repentance in your life. Because there is no willingness to change or to come out of your tradition, then you are blind.” Can we walk out of the priestly passivity that now rules much of the church? Can we walk out of decades of tradition in time to save nations? Can we once again see true shepherds releasing the heart of the Living God to the church? Can we see the church rise up and change nations? I believe we can, but that is not going to happen without a spiritual theological transition. Teaching the church how to rule and pastor with the rod of iron could bring this change!
