"That our eyes may be opened"

In the ninth chapter of John is a statement that is greatly comforting to the student of Christian Science who is facing what seems to be a formidable claim of impaired vision, or, in fact, any problem which does not seem to yield quickly to prayerful work.

When questioned as to the reason for the man's blindness, "Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him." How comforting to have this alleviation of any self-condemnation which may be secreted in the student's thought! He has not failed, after all! If he still seems "blind," the main issue now is not how it happened or who is to blame—the main issue is to turn the apparent problem into a triumphant demonstration of the power of God.
