I was introduced to Living Waters International this week. My friend Darrell introduced me to water missions several years ago. I hope to find myself more involved in meeting the needs of people by providing clean drinking water. I just read Randy’s post on water too.
Read John 9. How did Jesus reach this blind man? Jesus met a physical need. He didn’t try to convert this blind man. Jesus gave him his sight. After meeting the man’s need he came to him with the answer to life.
After the Jewish leaders kicked the blind man out of the meeting place, Jesus came to him,
35Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and went and found him. He asked him, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”
36The man said, “Point him out to me, sir, so that I can believe in him.”
37Jesus said, “You’re looking right at him. Don’t you recognize my voice?”
38“Master, I believe,” the man said, and worshiped him.
39Jesus then said, “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind.” (John 9, The Message).
