Thursday, March 31, 2011 – Lent 4, Year A
Jesus has healed a blind man who is now being questioned by his neighbors (and later by the Pharisees).
John 9:10-11 – But they kept asking him, “Then how were your eyes opened?” He answered, “The man called Jesus made mud, spread it on my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to Siloam and wash.’ Then I went and washed and received my sight.”
We have a Post It note that moves around our house. On it is written, ‘God is greater than our circumstances.’ I thought of this after reading today’s scripture. Mud and pond water are not typical mediums for healing, but our scriptures this week are showing us how our God can make use of unlikely people as well as unlikely medicines.
Prayer: Gracious God of mystery, we come to you as unlikely people, but we ask for your help and guidance as we strive to become better kingdom-builders. AMEN.
