As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard a crowd going by, he asked what was happening. They told him, â€˜Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.â€™ Then he shouted, â€˜Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!â€™ Those who were in front sternly ordered him to be quiet; but he shouted even more loudly, â€˜Son of David, have mercy on me!â€™ Jesus stood still and ordered the man to be brought to him; and when he came near, he asked him, â€˜What do you want me to do for you?â€™ He said, â€˜Lord, let me see again.â€™ Jesus said to him, â€˜Receive your sight; your faith has saved you.â€™ Immediately he regained his sight and followed him, glorifying God; and all the people, when they saw it, praised God.

A very insightful preaching today Judith Anne. Yes itâ€™s the deep inner sight that comes when stillness fills our soul that is more important than physical sight. Dear Bartimaeus, my favourite person who is so unafraid to shout out to Jesus for the gift of sight. And Jesus heard him. Thank you for your sharing today..
