Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):  I had a hard time coming up with these divisions.

1
1-16
Jesus makes mud on the Sabbath to display the works of God in a man born blind, dividing the Pharisees (divided here because of “Then” at beginning of v.17)
Principle:
Every day is a good day to display the works of God.
2
17-34
Pharisees question the blind man and his parents, and throw the man out of the synagogue
Principle:
True believers stand for Christ regardless of the circumstances.
3
35-41
Jesus reveals Himself to the man born blind and reveals to the Pharisees their blindness
Principle:
People can have physical sight and be blind spiritually.

 

Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure):  This wrote itself this week.

Jesus’ mud opens the eyes of a man born blind.

 

Aim:

TCMATK Jesus reveals Himself and our blindness so He may be displayed in the lives of His people.

 

Application:

1
What will you do this week so God can display His works in your life?  How will you encourage others to display God’s works in their lives?
2
In what way will you take a stand for Christ this week and how will you engage God to prepare for that moment?
3
What has Jesus revealed to you about Himself or your blindness this week and what will you do with that revelation?
