This week in John’s gospel we hear the account of the miraculous healing of the man born blind. Through this account we are shown the power and grace of Christ, but also we are reminded of the disbelieving nature of the world. Upon receiving this miraculous cure the man is ridiculed and constantly questioned as those around him refuse to believe the truth. Amidst the questioning and interrogation the man continues to speak the truth of his account with Jesus. This man was obviously not a theologian and could not provide the Pharisees with the answers they wished to hear. What he did consistently do is speak the truth about his encounter with Christ. How often do we, amidst the ridicule and disbelieve of others, continue to speak the truth? We to have been shown the light and are called to speak the truth that is revealed within it. Remember this man when disbelievers and persecutors confront you. Be like this man this week and when confronted speak the truth, and speak it with joy and love in your heart.
