Persistence on the Road to Faith

Persistence on the Road to Faith

Passage: Matthew 20:29-34

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Matthew: The King and His Kingdom

Category: Expository Book Study

Wherever Christ goes there is always a crowd, which catches the attention of two blind men who seek to be healed by Jesus when they cry out for his mercy. As the crowd tries to silence them, they cry out louder, Lord have mercy on us, Son of David! By using the Messianic title Son of David, these two men may be physically blind, but spiritually their vision is 20/20 for they recognize Jesus as Israel’s Messiah. To test their faith our Lord asks them, what do you want me to do you for you? At that moment, Jesus touches their eyes, and their faith becomes their sight for they are physically and spiritually healed. This miracle teaches us to examine our own spiritual eyesight and to see if it is growing stronger or weaker.
