Seeing Jesus

SERMON NOTES
Encountering Jesus
John 9:1-7

As He walked along, He saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned; he was  born blind so that God’s works might be revealed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” When He  had said this, He spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva and spread the mud on the man’s eyes, saying to him, “Go, wash in the pool of  Siloam” (which means Sent). Then he went and washed and came back able  to see.

Today we are going to look at the story of healing and confrontation.

Jesus is creator.

Jesus is about something new.

Jesus is power.

Jesus is worthy of Glory.

Those whom the world rejects, Jesus seeks with a love that will not stop.
So let us all open our eyes to what Jesus is doing.

Let’s look and see!

Let us believe, bow down and worship!
