(sermon begins at 27:15, Mark 10:43-52)
Pastor Pennington compares two instances of people asking Jesus to do something for them: James and John ask for privilege and power; blind Bartimaeus asks for Christ’s mercy and grace so that he may see. “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus.” Mark 10: 52.
What are you asking Jesus to do for you? Jesus healed the broken when they came to Him. Let’s be a people that declares, ‘Let me see!’
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.Psalm 34:18
