Blind man…

35 As Jesus came to Jericho, a certain blind man was sitting beside the road begging. 36 When the man heard the crowd passing by, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him, “Jesus the Nazarene is passing by.” 38 The blind man shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, show me mercy.” 39 Those leading the procession scolded him, telling him to be quiet, but he shouted even louder, “Son of David, show me mercy.” 40 Jesus stopped and called for the man to be brought to him. When he was present Jesus asked, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, I want to see.” 42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight! Your faith has healed you.” 43 At once he was able to see, and he began to follow Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they praised God too. (Luke 18:35-43, CEB)

This passage reminds me of the camp song Blind Man, which is also a sung done by the band The Kry. I have included the lyrics and a video for the song below.

The interesting thing about this passage is the man had heard about Jesus and knew, trusted, believed, had faith that Jesus could heal him and allow him to see.

Do you or I have that kind of trust in God? Do you believe God can heal you? Give you the life that you want/need?

How can we have the faith of this man, and trust that Jesus is the best thing for us and has our best interest at heart?

Love People. Love God.

The blind man stood by the road and he cried 
The blind man stood by the road and he cried 
The blind man stood by the road and he cried 
He cried oh, oh, oh

The woman stood by the well and she cried
The woman stood by the well and she cried
The woman stood by the well and she cried
She cried oh, oh, oh

Show me the way 
Show me the way 
Show me the way 
The way to go home

Jesus hung from the cross and He cried
Jesus hung from the cross and He cried
Jesus hung from the cross and He cried
He cried oh, oh, oh

Show me the way 
Show me the way 
Show me the way 
The way to go home

Jesus rose from the dead and He cried
Jesus rose from the dead and He cried
Jesus rose from the dead and He cried
He cried oh, oh, oh

I am the way, I am the truth, I am the life
And the way to go home
You are the way, You are the truth, You are the life
And the way to go home
