A Daily Devotion for Friday, March 5


John 9:1-12


verse 3: “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.”


This statement alone might suffice in so many situations. I can take anything to God: the small things or the big, ugly scary things. There does not need to be a reason for things to happen. If there is a reason, only God knows it. But he does tell us to come to him and ask for help, no matter what happens. It is in that asking for help that I am changed. When I am worn out from trying to fix myself on my own, and I finally go to God and let him know I need him, this is when change happens.

God above, I do need you. I forget sometimes, to ask, and I go on worrying and suffering on my own. You are always there for me, waiting for that call for help. Amen

John 9:4 - “We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work.”


Not knowing when ”night“ is coming is a two-edged sword. I can work for God as if everyday may be my last, or I may put off working for God, thinking, I‘ve got plenty of time. I’m healthy and the world is not going to end tomorrow. The point is Jesus didn’t say when nor do I really know. The only option for a Christian is to live the Christian life daily, not just an hour on Sunday.


Prayer - Jesus, who died, who is risen and who will come again, keep me focused on…

John 9: 1-12


5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”


Jesus is the light of the world. I was given new insight into Jesus when I was introduced to the Bible 3 years ago. I know that I never looked at Jesus the way I do today. Twelve years of religious education did not open my eyes to the light of Christ, as it does today. I have been granted another chance to get it right and I intend to do all I can to make it work.


Dearest Lord you have opened my eyes to your love and mercy. I can’t thank you enough for showing me how to become a bette…

John 9:1-12


The question the disciples asked, who is to blame. This is a common question we might ask ourselves when listening to all media podcast . Jesus reminds us that sometimes no one is to blame; he tells us that even difficult situations present an opportunity for us to believe God's presence. The man's blindness is cured, but the blindness of those who won't believe in Jesus remains. I think of how I stumble and am unsure of my direction until I remember to rely on Jesus. We live in a fallen world where good behavior and bad behavior are not always handled appropriately. Because of this many innocent people suffer. If God took our problems away every ti…

2021-0302 Tuesday, Daily Devotion - John 9:3 (NIV)


3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.


There are two kinds of people: one finds a reason for sin from disease and the other finds what God wants to display and wants us to see from the disease. I hope and pray that I want to see what God wants me to see from all kinds of happenings in my life and the world.


Lord, I need Your wisdom, Word, and insight to be able to see what You want me to see. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
