1 And as he was passing by, he saw a man blind from birth.
2 and his disciples asked him this: “Rabbi, who sinned, this person or his parents, so that he was born blind?”
3 Jesus answered “Neither this man sinned nor his parents; but he was born that way so that God’s works might be displayed in him.
4 We must work the works of him who sent me while day lasts. A night is coming when no one will be able to work.
5 As long as I am with the world, I am the light of the world.”
is it still night?
Jesus told his disciples that a night was coming in which nobody would be able to work the works of God. Was he referring to this present age? Are we living in an age when all miraculous works have ceased? I don’t think so. There are no recorded miracles pertaining to the time after Jesus’ ascension, before Pentecost. But there are plenty of miracles recorded after Pentecost. We are living in an age where we can do the works of God — including healing and deliverance, by the power of the Holy Spirit within us. The night Jesus referred to is over.
LORD, show us how to access your power within us to do all the works you want to do among us.
