A Confession of Faith

We sometimes hear it said that the healing work of Christ Jesus was accomplished without a moment's delay, as when light is brought into a dark room and the darkness vanishes. This is undoubtedly true of all healing which results from the understanding of spiritual law, but with the illumination comes a demand for a new sort of activity on the part of the one healed. Nothing of value can be accomplished in darkness, either on the mental or on the physical plane, and so, before the divine creation can be made manifest, the "Let there be light," must be uttered and responded to.

When Jesus healed the man who had been blind from his birth the man's illumination began at once and lighted for him the pathway of revelation. His astuteness was more than a match for the learned Pharisees who thought to frighten him by saying that he had been healed by a sinner, but the erstwhile blind man stoutly affirmed that God did not hear sinners, and he added, "If this man were not of God, he could do nothing." His crowning argument was, however, "Whereas I was blind, now I see."
