Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 154

154. “Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?” (John 9:8).

Isn’t this the same man? It’s a question that announces transformation. Immediately, we are struck with wondering who might ask such a question when looking at us. How has the journey with Christ affected us? Are we truly different? Without doubt, a blind-to-seeing change is extraordinary, but the new life Jesus brings to each of us is no less amazing. Paul said that we are a “new creature,” something wholly different than we were before. I suppose the greater question is to what degree is this newness showing? Our trust in Christ and pursuit of obedience to Him will ultimately reveal His amazing work in us.
