Memory Verse

“‘What do you want me to do for you?’ Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, ‘Rabbi, I want to see.’
‘Go,’ said Jesus, ‘your faith has healed you.’ Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road”

Audio Icon   Mark 10:51-52



In this episode, Spike is afraid of how people might react to his new glasses. He has to decide what is more important to him: sight or possible embarrassment.

Do you think that Jesus already knew that Bartimaeus was blind? Of course he did! Jesus knows exactly what you need all of the time. But sometimes the missing link is that YOU do not know what you need. Sometimes, Jesus waits for us to figure out what we are missing in our lives. Like Spike, we may be letting other people’s opinions keep us from what is really important. Whenever we tell Jesus that we want to see him better, to know him better, his answer is always, “Yes!” Maybe you need a vision correction today. Talk to Jesus; he loves to restore our sight!

Try a simple task with a blindfold on. Brushing your teeth? Drawing a house? Tying your shoe? Making your bed? No peeking!

Not being able to see makes even simple activities more difficult. Imagine how hard life was for Bartimaeus! As a blind man, he could do nothing but sit outside and beg. You can see why he would have done anything to get Jesus’ attention. What is making your life difficult now? Ask Jesus to help you see.
