Jesus’ disciples ask him a question, “Who Sinned.” We often times ask, “Why did God allow this to happen to us?” In the midst of trials and tragedies we sometimes lose focus and fail to recognize God’s purpose. Jesus responds back to His disciples, “That the works of God should be made manifest in him.” Things sometimes happen in our life, not because of wrong doing, but that God would be revealed and glorified.
Jesus finishes His teaching with two reminders that I think would serve us well today. “I must work… while it is day” Many questions are swirling in society today and as Christians we are reminded of the imminent, soon return of Jesus Christ for the Church. Are you working while it is day?
Finally, Jesus reminds us, “I am the light of the world.” As Christians we are called to be the light and salt to a dark and sinful world. The message of salvation was clear in the life of Christ,
“I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” John 14:6
How bright is your light, and how clear is your message?
