Genuine Faith Leads To Spontaneous Worship

You are blind. You were born blind. Some guy that you don't recognize finds you. He spits on the ground, mixes His spit with the dirt, smears it on your eyes and tells you to go splash some water on your face from a certain very significantly named pool (Siloam means "sent" which is Jesus' primary message about Himself in the gospel of John.) Miraculously, you can see!

Smart religious people try to convince you that the guy who healed you is a sinner because He healed you on the wrong day of the week. They interrogate you. They interrogate your parents. They tell you that you were "born entirely in sins" as they suggest that someone of your pedigree could have nothing to teach them about spiritual things.

Then the guy who restored your sight heard what they did to you and He finds you. He wants to know if you believe in the "Son of Man?" "Who is that," you ask. He says, "You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you."

Now my point:

"He said, 'Lord, I believe.' And he worshiped Him." (John 9:38)

Genuine faith leads to spontaneous worship. Worship Jesus now.
