MUSINGS – February 07, 2019

Matthew 9:27-31
When Jesus left that place, two blind men followed him. They shouted, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” Jesus went into a house, and the blind men followed him. He said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they answered. He touched their eyes and said, “What you have believed will be done for you!” Then they could see. He warned them, “Don’t let anyone know about this!” But they went out and spread the news about him throughout that region.

Jesus was leaving the house of the synagogue ruler, where he had just brought a dead girl back to life. It was done in private after sending the crowd out of the house.

However not everyone had left. At least two blind men had remained. They began to shout, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” Son of David was one out the titles of the long awaited Messiah. Though physically blind, these men had an insight that most had missed. They recognised Jesus as the true king of Israel who was come to save his people.

These Men believed that Jesus had the power to change their lives. When Jesus asked then if they believed, their answer was, “Yes, Lord,”

Lord, give us the strong beleif of these blind men, that we too might see.
