BIBLE VERSES: Mark 10:46-52
Last Sunday, I preached at City Harvest Church in Albany. I spoke on being “desperate for Jesus” and used the very appropriate story of the blind beggar, Bartimaeus in Mark 10. When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was near, he cried out in desperation for his sight to be restored. Impressed by the man’s faith, Jesus healed him and Bartimaeus followed Him.
You see, Bartimaeus realized that he was in dire need of a Savior and in doing so, he cried out to Jesus. But Jesus not only healed his physical ailment, but also saved him spiritually as well.
We need to be like the faithful Bartimaeus, blind in our faith and crying out for the Lord to save us!
