devotional post # 2031
Luk 18:40 So Jesus stopped and ordered the beggar to be brought to him. When the man came near, Jesus asked him,
Luk 18:41 “What do you want me to do for you?” He responded, “Lord, give me my sight back!”
Luk 18:42 Jesus said to him, “OK, receive your sight; your faith has healed you.”
Luk 18:43 And immediately he regained his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also gave praise to God.
the witness difference
You are not responsible for someone else’s relationship with God or status before him. But your experience with Jesus can be the catalyst for others to praise him. That was the case with the blind man of Jericho. Those around him were merely spectators to Jesus as he passed by. But then they saw what Jesus had done for the former blind man, and his devotion to Jesus as a follower, and these spectators became worshipers. His witness made the difference.
LORD, make us so committed to you that others are drawn to you by our testimony.
