“These words spake his parents because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already that if any man confess that he was Christ…” (22-23)

Unfortunately, those who are fearful are unfaithful… unfaithful to their beliefs and convictions and ultimately to the Lord. Remember the story of the man in John 9 who had been blind from birth? Jesus noticed him as he was walking down a street in Jerusalem with his disciples, Jesus opened his blind eyes and the man saw for the first time. Everyone that knew him was amazed. Up to this time he had been known throughout his community as the blind beggar, but now, he could see. Undoubtedly, he was very eager to tell his parents what had happened. Imagine how surprised his parents must have been as their son walked in unassisted, able to see, sharing all the details of what it was like to see for the first time in his life. However, the man’s parents were afraid to say anything about their son’s miracle when questioned by the Pharisees and rulers of the synagogue as to how his once blind eyes could now see. Rather than take any risk personally, they said “We don’t know what happened… He is of age ask him” (Jn 9:22-23) (Benny Hinn)

PRAYER LINE: O Father, help me be such a disciple – one who is honest enough to admit to confusion at some of the things You confront me with, but determined to go through with You at any cost. In Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen
