Mark 10:47-52

“And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart. Get up; he is calling you.” And throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me recover my sight.” And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.”

  • Jesus asks each of us the same question. While it may seem obvious that a blind man would want to see, many times we do not want our eyes opened to the truths of where we really are in our Christian lives. We must tell Jesus, with broken hearts, that we want to see through His eyes, and we must give Him total control to allow us to walk in the light.

1) Jesus is in the area.

2) Cry out to Jesus for mercy.

3) Don’t let anyone stop you from seeking Him.

4) Confess to Jesus what is keeping you from following Him.

5) Believe in your heart that Jesus can and will remove that stumbling block.

6) Follow Him!

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Proverbs 15:16

“Better is a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble with it.” Which of your earthly treasures are you willing to give up to be closer to God?

Proverbs 15:1

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” We have total control of how we talk to others. We must choose to either honor God or to remain prideful and self-righteous. May God be glorified in our responses. Do your answers induce anger or turn people from it? Matthew 12:34 “…..For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Proverbs 14:10 “Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.” Psalm 139:23-24 “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Proverbs 15:18 “A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.” Proverbs 15:28 “The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.” James 1:19-20 “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” Dear Lord, please guide us to be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger.

Proverbs 16:9 “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”
