“Jesus Heals Bartimaeus”

Key Verse

  “And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way” (Mark 10:52).

Text — Mark 10:46-50

Message

The healing of blind Bartimeaus by Jesus teaches us how far we can go in our quest to achieve anything in life. The tenacity, sheer determination, courage and absolute focus demonstrated by Bartimaeus ought to serve as a reference point in our quest to achieve any goal in life.W. Clement Stone wrote that, “You can judge the faith of an individual by what he does at the time of his greatest need, when he must either run, surrender or fight.” Blind Bartimaeus fought his way through and Jesus declared, “Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.” 

How did he get his sight in spite of challenges before him? First, he recognized the source of solution – Jesus. Second, he was unintimidated by the mammoth crowd and their hostility, trying  to shout him down. Third, he took his chances of meeting the Saviour and was specific about his need, which was, receiving his sight. And fourth, his unshakable faith in God to restore his sight. Such demonstration of great faith can never escape God’s attention.
