John 9:6 – When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes,
This poor blind man got totally blindsided. He was minding his own business, begging on the side of the road. This was just like any other boring day until he heard something unusual. You must be jerking my chain! (in Russia they say you are hanging spaghetti on my ears) He heard someone gathering saliva in his mouth and spitting. The next thing he knew someone was applying mud (made with spit) on his eyes. Then he heard a voice like he had never hear before, “Go wash your eyes in the Pool of Siloam”. After making his way to the pool and washing his eyes he could hardly believe it, HE COULD SEE !!! He could hardly believe what had happened, you have got to be kidding, who put this spaghetti on my ears?
Sometimes, that’s how it is with the Lord. You are just enduring the same old same old and suddenly, out of the blue, Jesus walks into the room. When that happens a whole new world begins to unfold.
That was just the beginning of this man’s drama. Next, he found himself caught up in a theological debate. Really? This is just a common beggar and now he finds himself debating with religious experts. The teachers said Jesus had violated the Sabbath by making mud and healing his eyes. The beggar said, “I don’t know about any of that. All I know is that I was blind and now I see”.
This is how it is with anyone who experiences a radical life change from the Lord. We may spend the rest of our lives studying to find out what really happened to us. I have to agree with the beggar, “I don’t know about a lot of things but Jesus touched me and my life has been changed”.
So maybe you are getting ready for one of those strange life changing moments. It often happens suddenly, without any warning. I guess the one recommendation that I have for you is this, don’t get set in your mind the way the change is going to come. It could come through spit and mud but it just may come with someone hanging spaghetti on your ears.
