When I read this passage this morning, it instantly took my thoughts to Ian, in his bed at the hospital. Along with the blind man in this story, it is not because Ian sinned that he is where he is now. I believe that it is so that "the works of God might be displayed in him." We have already seen so many works of God since Sept. 30: God's miracle in the ICU on the third day, Ian never needing surgery on his vertabrae or his knee, all of his organs and systems work perfectly, the list goes on and on. I believe that there are many more miracles to come. If the blind man came back from the pool seeing, then Ian is able to come home from the hospital walking.
