The truth of the matter is this, its not the mud that healed Him, it was his faith in Jesus that healed him. He had a choice to either opt, not to wash His face in the pool of Siloam or take a step of faith and go to Siloam and wash his face and he choose to go and wash his face as a sign of belief in Jesus. Miracles don’t always come in wrapped up packages looking all glamorous, no they don’t. Most of the times, we have missed our blessings because we expected them to come in the form of someone who is renowned, or wealthy and then it comes in the form of a simple guy like Jesus, who spits to the ground, mixes the mud and applies onto your face! Question is have you allowed Him to apply the simple mud onto you? or have you rejected His methods and termed them as simple and primitive? Our God works in mysterious ways, and His ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts our thoughts. Have you rejected your blessings because they came not the way you expected them? or have you accepted them?
If there is something that we learn from Jesus every time we read His story, is that He was the most humble person, He was simple, He mingled with the outcasts and everyone that had been termed as ‘a nobody.’ What of us? do we do the same? We should emulate our maker, we should learn from Jesus and be people who are approachable, reachable, kind and generous to all. Not forgetting not to pass judgment onto others, they may look simple, but they may carry our blessings, sent from our Father in Heaven.
