Have Mercy On Me

jesus mercy

 

And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way” (Mark 10:52). This is one of many times when Jesus ties healing to faith. Here a blind man cried out for mercy and came to Jesus. Jesus asked him what He could do for him. The blind man asked for his sight. Then Jesus told him his faith had made him whole. From the account there is very little evidence of faith as we think of it. Jesus, however, saw faith. I think He saw a man who called out to Jesus for mercy. When many rebuked him for yelling to Jesus, he kept at it. He was not going to let someone steal his healing. He knew if he could get the attention of Jesus, he would be healed. That’s faith. And when Jesus asked him what he wanted, He said he wanted to see. That’s faith. He didn’t say well I’m just an old sinner who doesn’t deserve anything. No, He went to Jesus for healing, and he got it. Jesus is the healer. Go to Him.
