29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30 Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
32 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.
33 “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.”
34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. Mathew 20:29-34
It’s really very interesting to find two blind persons ,they could not see anything and they had only heard of Jesus from other people yet they were so sure of Jesus’ authority that they didn’t pay heed to what the crowd said.
The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet and we all know the meaning of crowd ;crowd means a gathering of many people and in our daily lives we keep our mouth shut out of our fear of the crowd.We don’t dare to speak the truth because we are often worried of what the crowd would feel,say or do.
It is very strange that we haven’t mastered the real art of living.Would you mind if I say that it is useless to have two large eyes if we cannot see the glory of God?
Blessed are those two blind men because they realized the real power of Jesus and that is why they were able to shout aloud saying ‘Lord,have mercy on us,Son of David!’ Whenever the crowd ordered them to be quiet they shouted even more loudly.
My dear friends during this pandemic more people are praying and repenting to be saved .More people are praising and worshipping the Lord but we do not know whom the Lord will ask ‘What do you want me to do for you?’.Yes we have a little idea,a probability that the Lord will certainly ask such a question to a person who is not scared to praise adore and worship the Lord with all his/ her strength despite the warning of the enemies who are always trying to stop us from doing so.
So let us praise the Lord like those blind men and be sure that the Lord will stand still and call out your name ,their names or may be my name.
I am sure we are ready to spend a few minutes of our twenty four hours to praise him .Remember the fact that he is the best master on earth and heaven .He will pay you for even a minutes praise and worship.Nothing will go in vain.
Pray for all and pray for me too as I am a worst sinner.
