John 9:5-11 Let your life be a witness

John 9:5-11
5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
6 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,
7 And 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.
8 The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged?
9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened?
11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

-The people had a great question for the man who once was blind; how is it that you came to see?  The man could have attempted to explain the healing properties of the mud once it had been touched by the hand of God or He could have talked about God’s omnipotence and how simple it would be for Him to heal what He had originally created; instead he takes a far simpler and far more profound route by telling everyone who asks that he met a man named Jesus and he was healed when he did what Jesus told him to do.  Being a witness can be the most overwhelming, most terrifying thing for any of us and I think the reason is because we overcomplicate it; we attempt to explain and convince people on biblical matters when the whole time we should just be telling people what the Lord has done for us.  People can look at the stars and see proof of how big God is, but if you let people take a look at your broken life that God has fixed, they’ll see proof of how good God is.
