And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has healed you”. And immediately he received his sight and follow Jesus on the way,
Bartimaeus was a blind person but he knew that he had the opportunity to see when he encountered Jesus. Originally he was not encouraged by others, but because of persistence, Jesus heard him and healed him.
This story can tell us many things about how we can live in the world today!
There are so many things going on in our world that we can easily be blinded by the confusion that is ever present. There are so many questions that we have to deal with. There is the on going Pandemic! There is hate that seems more present than love! And we have our usual struggles.
Lord Jesus we need to see!
People, places and things may keep us from Jesus. They may keep us from doing “the next right thing!”
Be like Bartimaeus, be persistent!
Jesus will open our eyes to see through the confusion. Also like Bartimaeus, we want to stay sighted, “going our way must be going Jesus’ Way”!
