There was once a blind man.
A man who was alive at the time Jesus was here on Earth.
This blind man’s life would soon be changed forever:
Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”
So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.
“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
What do you think you would do if you had been that blind man?
Would you have followed Jesus on the road?
What if that happened today?
Would you get in the car with Jesus and just go with Him down the road, wherever He went?
Jesus has given us the greatest gift of all.
The gift of salvation.
The gift of eternity with Him in Heaven.
Should we get in our cars and follow Him along the road, wherever He goes?
