Jesus was followed by a large crowd as he and his disciples were leaving Jericho. Two blind men were sitting beside the road. And when they heard that Jesus was coming their way, they shouted, “Lord and Son of David, have pity on us!”
The crowd told them to be quiet, but they shouted even louder, “Lord and Son of David, have pity on us!”
When Jesus heard them, he stopped and asked, “What do you want me to do for you?”
They answered, “Lord, we want to see!”
Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. At once they could see, and they became his followers.
These two blind men thought that all they wanted from Jesus was to be healed. It must be very hard to live in a world without the ability to see anything around you. But when Jesus touched their eyes He also captured their hearts! They asked to be and were healed but also received an Eternity with Jesus as His followers.
In a real sense every man and woman alive today is blind and needs the touch of Jesus in order to see. If everyone were physically blind, then no one would know what they were missing. But when one Man comes who can see the light and offers to heal everyone else, everything changes!
Jesus was the only man who had seen God and by His death on the Cross He gives us the opportunity to receive our sight and see God as well! Has Jesus touched your spiritual eyes and healed you of your blindness? Because of Jesus do you see things that you have never seen before?
"Lord Jesus touch my eyes that I may see the things of Eternity. Open the eyes of my heart today and let me gaze on the Glories of Heaven! Show me things I have never seen before and haven't even imagined! And may You, Jesus be praised and glorified forever. Amen."
