Today we read the account of the man who had been born blind. When JESUS' disciples asked him why this man was born blind, JESUS said this in John 9:3:

Jesus answered, It was not that this man or his parents sinned, but he was born blind in order that the workings of God should be manifested (displayed and illustrated) in him.

JESUS said that the works of God were to be manifest in this man. What are those works of God? Verses 4-7:
We must work the works of Him Who sent Me and be busy with His business while it is daylight; night is coming on, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the world’s Light. When He had said this, He spat on the ground and made clay (mud) with His saliva, and He spread it [as ointment] on the man’s eyes. And He said to him, Go, wash in the Pool of Siloam—which means Sent. So he went and washed, and came back seeing. 

When this man obeyed the instructions of JESUS, even though they probably seemed completely bizarre to him, HE CAME BACK SEEING! Those are the works of God! Healing and health are the works of God! Peace and prosperity are the works of God! Salvation and restoration are the works of God! Mercy, grace, anointing and favor are all the works of God! Would you like to have a SURE gauge for the works of God? John 10:10 AMPC:

10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

AMEN! If it steals, kills or destroys, it is NOT GOD! The Jewish leaders would not admit that these were the works of God because then they would have had to answer why they were not doing those works! I LOVE how this now healed and set free SEEING man answered them when they kept hounding him to try and get something to use against JESUS from him! After asking them if they, too, desired to be a disciple of JESUS (which they SHOULD have!), he then said this in verses 30-33:
30 The man replied, Well, this is astonishing! Here a Man has opened my eyes, and yet you do not know where He comes from. [That is amazing!] 31 We know that God does not listen to sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and a worshiper of Him and does His will, He listens to him. 32 Since the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind. 33 If this Man were not from God, He would not be able to do anything like this.

AMEN! He spoke TRUTH and they still would not accept it, but tried to ridicule the man. I really don't think that a man who is now seeing for the very first time cared one bit what THEY had to say to or about him! HE CAN SEE! He is ecstatic and overflowing with joy! Thank You, JESUS, for your wonderful works! AMEN! Here is Hillsong Worship with "Who You Say I AM":

Shalom in Him!
