I’ve only read one sermon that Spurgeon did on John 9, the accounting of the man born blind who would be healed, and it is on this text:
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him (the formerly blind man) out, and having found him he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 36 He answered, “And who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?”37 Jesus said to him, “You have seen him, and it is he who is speaking to you.” 38 He said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshiped him.
May we never forget that the greatest thing Jesus did for the man comes near the end of John 9, not at the beginning – Jesus fully revealed himself! And the man WORSHIPPED because he could now ‘see’ Jesus for who he really is!
Spurgeon provides some great advice from that text:
When you are seeking Christ, ask Christ to reveal himself to you, for there is nobody who can reveal Christ as Christ can reveal himself by is blessed Spirit.
And, next, when you are confessing your faith, confess it to Christ himself. Say, as this man did, “Lord, I believe.” Say to your minister, or to your mother, or to your friends, “I believe;” but take, care, above all the rest, that you say, “Lord, I believe.”
And, lastly, when you are worshipping, worship Christ himself: “He worshipped HIM,” and no one else. Take care that your reverence and adoration are not given, in any degree, to the church, or to any person in it, or to any priest, or minister, or anything created or made; but worship God, and God in Christ Jesus; and the Lord bless you, beloved, for his name’s sake! Amen.
Charles H. Spurgeon, A Pressed Man Yielding to Christ, delivered October 12, 1882.
