spiritual sight.

5Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"

36"Who is he, sir?" the man asked. "Tell me so that I may believe in him."

37Jesus said, "You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you."

38Then the man said, "Lord, I believe," and he worshiped him.

I love this dialog between Jesus and the man who was once blind. Even though this man can see, he is still in the dark, in a way. He went to the temple, but the leaders reject him, throwing him out of the place of worship. Nevertheless, he is still very curious, still very in need of God.

Jesus finds him and begins to really open his eyes. The man's eagerness to know Jesus and to know God is amazing! I love this part: Jesus says, "You have now seen him." This is in fact what Jesus has done; He has enable this man to not only see from a physical, human standpoint but also in a spiritual manner as well.
