devotional post # 2030
Luk 18:35 While Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the road begging.
Luk 18:36 When he heard a crowd going by, he asked what was going on.
Luk 18:37 They told him, “Jesus the Nazarene is passing by.”
Luk 18:38 So he called out, “Jesus, Son of David, show mercy to me!”
Luk 18:39 And those who were in front shushed him to get him to be quiet, but he shouted even more, “Son of David, show mercy to me!”
spectacle or Saviour
To the crowd watching as Jesus approached Jericho, Jesus was merely a spectacle to be seen. But to the blind man, Jesus was his Saviour — his only chance to get back the sight that he lost. When you realise your desperate need for Jesus, don’t expect the sightseeing crowd to applaud your commitment. Seek him anyway.
LORD, we desperately need you. Come into our dark lives and shine.
