Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?" "Who is he, sir?" the man asked. "Tell me so that I may believe in Him." Jesus said, "You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you." Then the man said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him (John 9:35-38).
This formally blind man had been healed by Jesus. Jesus spat on the ground and made mud and covered the mans eyes with it. Then, sent him to the Pool of Siloam. (John 9:1-7). Which means sent. However, it was not the pool that had healed him but the One who sent him.
Jesus seeks after you. Jesus seeks after me. It is He, the "sent one" of God, who is the light of the world who seeks for us. He is not lost, we are. This is why he sent his Son into the world to find and save us (John 3:16). What a beautiful picture of our Lord and Savior finding the man. Then, asking him the most important question that can be asked: "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"
Romans 10:9 states; "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
The world cannot see God, for like the Pharisees, their eyes are covered. They had seen but could not believe. The same Jesus that healed the man and sought for him, seeks for you. He seeks to open your spiritual eyes. What will you do with him? Will you believe?
