I love the story of the blind man who receives his sight because of what it illustrates regarding the hearts of the Pharisees. The problem with the Pharisees was that they approached Jesus with a closed box. The Messiah, in their minds, had to fit into a certain category of expectations. Of course he would be one of the religious people – because God is all about religion. But Jesus came and helped people realize that God isn’t all about religion. In fact, sometimes the religious have nothing to do with God. So when the man was healed by Jesus, and the Pharisees questioned him, they were unhappy with his answers. The man could only say one thing: “All I know is that I was blind before, and now I see.” He didn’t know how it happened or what caused the change. But something miraculous happened, and he couldn’t deny it. That’s really what faith is about. We can’t always explain it: sometimes all we know is what we know – just like the man who received his sight. If that’s your story, don’t be discouraged. Stick with it. You don’t have to explain it all. That’s what it means to have faith.
