REJOICE! WORSHIP | OCTOBER 24

October 24, 2021 • Pastor Dave Koppel • Mark 10:46–52

Most cars have a blind spot—some bigger than others. We use our mirrors, we turn our heads, but unless we are in a convertible or on a motorcycle, we will have to accept that we have a blind spot. We all have blind spots, and not just in our cars. In today’s gospel, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, called out to Jesus, “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me!”Jesus called out to him, and Bartimaeus came over to him, and Jesus asked, “what do you want me to do for you?” Bartimaeus said, “My teacher, let me see again.” Jesus told him that his faith made him well, and Bartimaues’ sight was restored, and he followed Jesus. Miracles still happen. Jesus still heals us. But often don’t even know to ask because we are so blinded, and so used to it, that we may not even realize what we need. What are we blind to—that Jesus opens our eyes?
