What is Faith?
What a beautiful, straightforward story!
As Jesus is going out from Jericho, a blind man cries out to him, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” So, Jesus stops, asks the man what he wants him to do for him, and very specifically Bartimaeus declares, “I want to see!” Jesus says to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” Regaining his sight Bartimaeus follows Jesus on the road.
What is faith? Bartimaeus grasps who Jesus is. He persists in calling out to him. He expects to be healed. He asks specifically.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for Your Word, the Bible. Thank you for reminding us that Jesus truly is the answer to our needs; the One who can guide our choices and set us on the good road. Amen.
