While many people missed who Jesus was and His purposeful mission on earth, there were two blind men who saw exactly who Jesus was! Matthew 20 tells us their story. Jesus was passing by on the road to Jerusalem and these two men would not stop crying out for Jesus to have mercy on them. Even when the crowd tried to hush them, they cried all the louder to Jesus.
Even though they could not physically see, what did they “see” by understanding Jesus?
So, what happened?
He did just that! He had compassion on them & He healed their eyes.
In response, they followed Him.
Jesus looks at us with compassion and heals us, forgiving our sin, so that we can follow Him, too.
That’s why He rode into Jerusalem after this account. He had already looked with the Father from all eternity and saw us, even before we were ever born. Knowing our situation, He had compassion on us, compassion that drove Him to the cross.
I invite you to our Good Friday service at 7 pm as we remember the death of Jesus and to celebrate His resurrection on Sunday at 9 am and 10:30 am.
Let’s focus on Him this Holy Week,
