"He answered, “Whether he is a sinner I do not know. One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.”" -- John 9:25

How disturbing it is when the simplicity of Jesus is confused with man-made demands. We resist the work of our Savior by demanding all the answers now. The writer of Hebrews made it rather clear in 11:1, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." We may not know all the details, but we do know that the Lord is doing wondrous things in our midst.
The religious leaders were stifled by the miracles and because they were unable to explain them, so they rejected them. The Lord didn't fit into their mold as he continued to minister outside of the box. Those that had faith experienced spiritual sight while unbelief brought true blindness.
Do you see the Lord at work in your life my friend? Does your faith take hold of the unseen and find "the assurance of things hoped for"? Rather than waiting for all the details to be explained, rejoice in the simplicity of Jesus and give Him room to do great things.
