John 9:01-41 Bible Commentary
Blind receive sight and those who see shall become blind is what Jesus said to the people after He had restored the sight of a man who had been born blind. This commentary section is an introduction to these verses which speaks about healing both physical and spiritual blindness.
We believe that even though Jesus physically gave sight to a blind man, the true message of this story is about spiritually seeing the heavenly will of God and what the Lord wants us to do.
As an example, most of the people in the world are spiritually blind to the fact that we are to help free creation from its present corruption, which includes ending the violence that causes millions of humans and billions of animals to suffer and die every year, and this has to begin with our own lifestyle, which means that we should all be vegans, not just in what we eat, but in our whole lifestyle.
Being able to see in this heavenly manner includes having the love, compassion, and empathy that feels the pain and suffering of the whole of creation (every human, every animal, and the environment in which we all live).
When we recognize the fact that Jesus is our Lord and Savior, we need to allow the Holy Spirit to fill us completely without trying to compare how God wants us to live as compared to the way we have been living or the way that most people are living; we need to completely open up to the Lord with no preconceived ideas; we need to allow the Lord to cleanse us completely and restore us to be in the image of God that He created us to be.
