John 9, has a story of a blind man Jesus and his Disciples encountered as they went along in ministry.
In verse 2, the blind man is hit with condemnation from Christ own followers; John 9:2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered that none but for the glory of the Lord to be revealed, in other words; for the salvation of the Lord to be experienced. 

After Christ has healed him, this man run to town with his sight fully recovered and men started asking, is this not the blind man who has being begging; just as there are people who are still contemplating whether some of us are truly saved. Scripture says, some doubted but the Healed blind man responded that,9 Some claimed that he was.Others said, “No, he only looks like him.”But he himself insisted, “I am the man.” 

Many of us are faced with some of these questions from those around us and those we met whiles in darkness which makes it difficult for us to ANSWER, because thoughts like; they won't believe you, they don't trust that you have really being saved etc. But the Good news is that, my dear what they think and want to perceive about your salvation does not matter at all, what matters now is, your eyes can see the truth now, no one can deceive and mislead you to where you don't want to go again.

Down the verses, from verse 13-35, the Healed blind man was being investigated by the pharisees who can be represented as those close to us, family, friends, elders etc., during all this investigation, they tried to talk him out of believing that Christ has healed him yet could not also state  another source. 

Don't  allow their blindness to mislead you!
In real life, some of us have, family members, friends, colleagues etc., who believe we can never be truly saved, therefore they try to talk us out of our salvation and the hope of being able to give it all up for Christ.  I like the response the man gave them in the mist of all these chaos; 25 He replied, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I don’t know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!”We need to make strong confessions like this to secure our faith and salvation in Christ if not, men will cause us to loose it for nothing. Whether they understands it or they don't, it doesn't mean anything to Christ, yours matters to him more than those who have made up their minds to blind themselves from the things of God. BE FIRM AND PERSISTENT IN YOUR FAITH IN GOD AND SALVATION IN CHRIST JESUS!
