Fourth Sunday in Lent
“Karma vs. Grace”
Rev. James L. Mayland
7:30am & 9am Sunday, March 19, 2023 in the Upper Sanctuary
Trinity Lutheran Church & School
FOCUS Some of the central people in the Gospel narratives we get to know by name; others we do not. Although the man born blind is a major person in John 9, we never learn what his name might be. We meet his parents and his neighbors and we meet the Pharisees to whom he tells the story of the miraculous restoration of his sight. Although we do not learn his name, Jesus said of the man born blind that the works of God were displayed in him. As the One brightening our lives with the light of salvation, Jesus brings a new vision to our lives—an eternal vision of life with God that never ends. God knows our names. He directs the cross currents of our daily lives. In His light we see light—and that is what matters!
