Blinded by the Light

Faith is the belief

In things unseen

The glory of God

Is so bright

You will go blind

When you see it

 

St. John 9:39

“For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not, might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”

 

St. John 9:41

“If you were blind, you should have no sin, but now you say, we see; therefore, your sin remains.”

  1. Hello Krista,
    Thanks for this post – there are a few quotes from the Gospel of John that remain intangible to me. I’m glad I read one of which – “John 9:41”.

    Does “being blind” here imply “having faith”, according to you? 🙂

    1. Blind means to have no understanding
      Those who admit to their blindness (ignorance)
      Are given sight (vision) to see the light

      Those who think they have understanding
      And say, I am not blind, I can see
      Will have their vision taken from them
      Like removing an obstacle to the light

      For they claim to have vision
      Yet see not the light in others
      Their sin remains in them
      There is no sin in the light

      My poem was inspired by Paul the apostle who said
      “And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by them that were with me, I came into Damascus.” (Acts 22:11)
      He was blinded by that light
      But after three days his sight was restored

      Thanks for reading and showing an interest!

      1. Thank you so much. It tells me that to be a son/daughter of God is to remain humble always and be authentic to what we truly are, at any moment. When we embrace our ignorance, we are given the wisdom. But, when we think we are wise, yet be an hypocrite (knowingly or unknowingly), we suffer greatly.

        Thank you so much for your patience and time in answering me. ✨🙏🏾💜
