Like the Pharisees in John 9, we can fool ourselves into thinking we are spiritually wise. The Bible describes this as a hopeless situation. Our response to Jesus, which is required of everyone, reveals what we really think of our spiritual condition. Alistair Begg invites us to honestly ask the question, Are we blind, too? While there is no cure for those who won’t accept the fact that they are in need of healing, Jesus freely grants spiritual life to all who believe in Him.
39Jesus said, “For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see may become blind.” 40Some of the Pharisees near him heard these things, and said to him, “Are we also blind?” 41Jesus said to them, “If you were blind, you would have no guilt;4 but now that you say, ‘We see,’ your guilt remains.
