The next day two guys who used to be blind walk into a bar.
“Aren’t you the blind beggars?”
One of them answers.
“I was blind but now I see”.
“That’s impossible. How, how can you see now? What happened?”
“I’m not supposed to say anything. The guy that touched me asked me not to tell anyone.”
“The guy, what guy? Who touched you? Who healed you?”
“This guy, some teacher guy. His name is Jesus. He..he can do things, can fix things.”
“He’s a healer then?”
“Yes, the first thing we saw once we were healed was him
Casting a demon out of a mute and then he could talk. But its more than that. He says things, he talks about God. I can’t explain it. You should meet him. You need to hear what he says. Ah, I’ve said too much already..”
“Two blinds guys, healed…”
“Yup, we once were blind but now we see.”
“His name is Jesus you say, I gotta meet this guy…”
The day before.
“27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”
28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
“Yes, Lord,” they replied.
29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; 30 and their sight was restored. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” 31 But they went out and spread the news about him all over that region.
32 While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. 33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.”
34 But the Pharisees said, “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.”’
I have been touched by Jesus.
He has forgiven all of my sin. He has set me in a family. He has provided for me. He has shown me love and mercy and grace.
I’m writing this today to tell people who don’t know about Jesus that he has died to Pay for our sins. I’m also writing to remind those of us who do know Jesus to tell others about him.
We get today. We only have today. What will we do about this Jesus? Believe him and receive him?Please do.
If we already know him will we tell other people about him? Will we live in such a way that we honor him and attract others to him by our gracious way of life? Please do.
