Welcome to our online Bible study on Luke!
Read: Luke 18:18-43
So a blind man is sitting by the road and he hears a commotion and asks those around him what is happening. Someone tells him that Jesus is coming by, so the blind man cries out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus stops and asks the blind man, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
Um, isn’t it sort of obvious? He is blind after all. And Jesus has this reputation for, you know, healing people! Why does Jesus ask the obvious?
He wants the blind man to say the words . . . “I want to see.” He wants the blind man to speak it — the thing that might sound crazy, the thing that seems too impossible.
It’s the same with us too. When we go to Him in prayer, He wants us to say the words . . . to ask Him, even the thing that might sound crazy or impossible. Jesus isn’t a genie in a bottle. But He does want us to tell Him about the dreams in our hearts.
If Jesus were to ask you today . . . “What do you want Me to do for you?” . . . what would you say?
