Call – Obey – See the Lord and Be Saved!

If you desire to see the Lord with all your heart, first you must call out to Him. Then you must listen for His voice. When you obey Him, then you will see. And sometimes, you will have to ignore the advice of those around you. This was the way it worked for the blind beggar in the Gospel of Luke 18.35-43.

When the beggar heard Jesus of Nazareth was passing by, he called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” But many tried to silence him because Jesus was an important person. “But he cried all the more, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!’” And Jesus took notice. He was healed of his physical blindness because he could already see with his spiritual heart what those around him could not see with their physical eyesight.

If Jesus is speaking to your heart, don’t allow those around you keep you quiet. Call to Him and He will hear you. Come to Him and He will meet you. Love Him and He will save you. It works the same for you today as it did for the blind beggar then. And God will say to you, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.”
