The Junkyard Genius. 

JESUS is the restorer of life.

One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see! John 9:25

Noah Purifoy began his work as an “assemblage” artist with three tons of rubble salvaged from the 1965 riots in the Watts area of Los Angeles. From broken bicycle wheels and bowling balls to discarded tires and damaged TV sets—things no longer usable—he and a colleague created sculptures that conveyed a powerful message about people being treated as “throw-aways” in modern society. One journalist referred to Mr. Purifoy as “the junkyard genius.”

In JESUS’S time, many people considered those with diseases and physical problems as sinners being punished by GOD. They were shunned and ignored. But when JESUS and His disciples encountered a man born blind, the LORD said his condition was not the result of sin, but an occasion to see the power of GOD. “While I.AM in the world, I.AM the light of the world” (John 9:5). When the blind man followed JESUS’S instructions, he was able to see.

GOD takes our broken lives and shapes us into His new creations.

When the religious authorities questioned the man, he replied simply, “One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!” (v. 25).

JESUS is still the greatest “junkyard genius” in our world. We are all damaged by sin, but He takes our broken lives and shapes us into His new creations.

LORD, I thank You today for Your amazing grace!

JESUS is the restorer of life.

INSIGHT:

Have you ever felt as though you saw no purpose to your life, couldn’t see your way forward, and were not even sure there is a GOD willing or able to give you light at the end of the tunnel? John wrote his gospel to proclaim the life and light that troubled people like us long for (John 1:1–5). John found many reasons to believe that JESUS really is the light of the world: “These [miraculous signs] are written that you may believe that JESUS is the MESSIAH, the SON OF GOD, and that by believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).
