Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Matthew 20:29-34 NLT

As Jesus and the disciples left the town of Jericho, a large crowd followed behind. Two blind men were sitting beside the road. When they heard that Jesus was coming that way, they began shouting, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” “Be quiet!” the crowd yelled at them. But they only shouted louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” When Jesus heard them, he stopped and called, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord,” they said, “we want to see!” Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.

Reflection . . .

Here yet again we see Jesus healing people, two blind men sitting by the road, calling out to Him,

“Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

We must understand from this story and others, that asking for God’s mercy is the key to receiving from the Lord. It is key for us to receive God’s grace and for salvation. We must acknowledge our sin and ask for Him to cleanse us, to heal us. That is exactly what happened here in this even. They cried out for mercy to the Lord and responded with what they really wanted. Jesus healed them and they followed Him.

All creation cries out to the Lord of His glory.

Our eyes need to be opened in order to see and experience the greatness of his power and majesty
