As we look at the third of the healing miracles shown in John’s gospel, we look at the healing of the man born blind.  This miracle was a creative miracle.  The mud – the dust of the earth – was used to create a new life for this man.  His sight had to literally be created before the man could see.  Like Adam in Genesis, who came from the dust, this man’s sight was created through the application of dust.  Like sight was put into this man, God puts His own son into us in such a way that the rest of the world may see Jesus through us.

Based on John 9:1-16.
