Sunday Devotional: ‘Master, I want to see’

Rate this post

Mark 10:46-52

As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd,
Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus,
sat by the roadside begging.
On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth,
he began to cry out and say,
“Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.”
And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent.
But he kept calling out all the more,
“Son of David, have pity on me.”
Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called the blind man, saying to him,
“Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you.”
He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.
Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?”
The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.”
Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.”
Immediately he received his sight
and followed him on the way.

The blind man said to our Lord: “Master, I want to see.”

What about the spiritually blind?

Ezekiel 12:2

[Y]ou are living among a rebellious people.
They have eyes to see but do not see
and ears to hear but do not hear,
for they are a rebellious people.

And when a people are rebellious, with eyes that do not see and ears that do not hear, the result is the upside down world we live in where evil is called good, and good is called evil (Isaiah 5:20) because the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

We were amply warned by prophets and saints for the times in which we find ourselves. Humans are experts at lying. Every day and in every way, we find yet another case of monumental deception. See:

So how do we acquire the eyes that see — the spiritual sight that penetrates the dark webs of deception that surround us?

How does one go from “I was blind and now I see“? (John 9:25)

The answer is Christ.

Always.

May the light of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

  2. And with Your Spirit. How can there be so many unable to see the light from above.

     
  3. The Blind Man Saw it All, by the Booth Brothers
    https://youtu.be/j4H-J5Ynpog

    I was working in town one afternoon
    Attending some business affairs
    I heard a commotion a couple streets over And wondered
    Whats happening there
    A young man was running from in that direction
    And stopped just to catch his breath
    I asked him to please tell me what was the hurry
    He smiled up at me and he said.

    I was trying to catch the crippled man
    Did he run past this way?
    He was rushing home to tell everyone
    What Jesus did today
    And the mute man was telling myself and the deaf girl
    He’s leaving to answer God’s call
    Its hard to believe but if you dont trust me
    Ask the blind man, he saw it all
    Go ask the blind man, he saw it all

    So my friend if the troubles and burdens you carry
    Are heavy and dragging you down
    You’ve tried everything you can possibly think of
    There’s no relief to be found
    That very same Jesus that altered the future
    Of a blind man, the deaf, and the lame
    Is still reaching out in your hour of trouble
    One touch and you’re never the same.

    You’ll be trying to catch the crippled man
    Did he run past this way?
    He was rushing home to tell everyone
    What Jesus did today
    And the mute man was telling myself and the deaf girl
    He’s leaving to answer God’s call
    It’s hard to believe but if you don’t trust me
    Ask the blind man, he saw it all
    Go ask the blind man, he saw it all
    He saw it all

     
  4. I have heard it said and I’ve seen it from people who are born-again that, once a person meets Jesus—even in a spiritual way, in his heart—his life shall never be the same again.
    I was closer to God when I was a boy. Whatever it is I am going through, I know God knows more about it than I. I just hope I turn out to be a better man for it.

     
  5. The greatest gift that God can give you is the ability to see right through lies and propaganda. Real eyes can see right through real lies.
    I have been studying the coming New World Odor since the fourth grade and it hasn’t been easy but definitely worth every minute.
    It is difficult to watch Bolshevik propaganda on the flashing teevee box but I want to know what the enemy is up to as much as possible and the laughs are good belly ones.
