Don't Ask "What Went Wrong?" See Jesus, the Light of the World

"And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. 2And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him." (John 9: 1-3)

When the disciples saw this man, blind from birth, by the road, the disciples wanted to find out why he was blind. Whose fault was it?

That is the mentality of man. We want to find fault and then fix the problem by assigning blame.

Jesus pushed that question aside with one answer: It's not the parents' fault, nor the man's. This failing is a chance for God's work of grace to be manifest.

 In the beginning, God created everything.

Even when His creation had become with form and void because of Satan and his fallen angels, God our Creator did not sit around and complain

He spoke restoration:

"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day." (Genesis 1: 3-5)

Today, we have this Light in our lives: Jesus!

"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." (John 8: 12)

In fact, as the Light, Jesus healed the man blind from birth:

"As long as I'm in the world, I'm the light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing." (John 9: 5-7)

Whatever hardship you are facing in your life, stop asking: "Whose fault is it?" or "Why did this happen?" We live in a fallen world, and all men have sin and died because of Adam. (Romans 5: 15)

Today, we have the Second Adam, Jesus Christ, who takes away the sins  of the world, and has blessed with all spiritual blessings (Ephesians 1:3), who went around healing and doing good in spite of men's sins (Acts 10: 38)

Don't look at yourself and ask: "What did I do wrong?" but see Jesus, the Light of all men, and be transformed from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3: 18)
