What HE can do for you.

I read this the other day and something stood out to me. “As Jesus walked along, He saw a man who had been born blind. 2) His disciples asked Him, ‘Rabbi, WHY was this man born blind? Did he or his parents sin?’ 3) Jesus answered, ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned. Instead, he was born blind so that God could show what He can do for him.'” (John 9:1-3 GW)

From 2003 – 2008 I had severe back pain that eventually turned out to be a broken back. It happened when I fell down our stairs…the onset of 5 horrific years of pain. One Sunday morning, as I was limping my pain-riddled body to the pulpit to preach, a man grabbed my arm and stopped me. He said, “Pastor Kevin, do you want to know WHY your back still hurts after all these years?” I cautiously replied, “Ummm, OK, why?” With a concerned voice he said, “It’s the SIN in your life!” Ohhh….now I’m not sure whether in my head or in my audible voice, I looked into his eyes and said, “LOOK BUDDY! I have repented so much that I EVEN REPENTED FOR ‘YOUR’ SINS!”

Just like the story of this blind man, people today still want to “play God” by judging or blaming innocent people that are hurting. They launch their fiery darts like, “You don’t have enough faith.” Or, “You must have done something bad to deserve this.” LISTEN….in John 9:3, Jesus said the man was born blind so God could show what His miraculous healing power could do for this “hurting” man. It should be OBVIOUS that God is more interested in HEALING hurting people than trying to decipher WHY they are hurting. Let’s be like Jesus and focus on helping, healing, and praying for hurting people instead of judging, condemning, and accusing them.Ummm, OK, I’m going to say it….IF someone doesn’t want to be like Jesus and help hurting people, they run the risk of being in a book I’m writing titled, THE DEVIL WEARS CHURCH CLOTHES. I’m just sayin’……

In Him,

Pastor Kevin Kinchen
