"Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
Blind Bartimaeus sat begging outside Jericho, and although he was blind, he knew the One to whom he had called out. “Son of David!” he cried, using a well-known title for Messiah. Christ asks what he wanted for Him to do and all Bartimaeus asks for is his sight. With these words, Christ merely granted what Bartimaeus already had: sight. This blind beggar could clearly see the truth of this captivating man from Nazareth.
What can we learn from the blind beggar? Certainly that Christ comes when we call and asks what we wish for Him to do for us. Those who have their requests granted must have faith in God and be able to walk by faith, not by sight. Bartimaeus did this well. Thus, our Lord gave him a sweet glory in the sight of his Lord’s face. If your faith be great and your sight be true, you shall see His face one day as well.
