I Want To See


“As the man came near, Jesus asked him, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘I want to see!’ And Jesus said, ‘All right, receive your sight! Your faith has healed you.’ Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all who saw it praised God, too.”
Luke 18:40-43 (NLT)

What a gift. I love the fact that Jesus said, “What do you want me to do?” Knowing the power of the person asking, the man asked for the extreme gift, “I want to see!” What a request. What an answer. Jesus said, “Alright, receive your sight, your faith has healed you.” Jesus has the power to answer our prayers too. I thought of those of us who are not blind. Our eyes work, but what do we see? How many of us suffer from emotional or spiritual blindness? What do we see? Do we see opportunities? Do we see God’s gracious hand in our affairs? Do we see a world with joy, kindness and love? Or is our vision skewed? We need our blindness healed. We need corrected vision. Where we see doubt, we need to see assurance. Where we see sadness, we need to see joy. Where we see fear, we need to see peace and courage. Where we see hate, we need to see love. Where we see shame, we need to see beauty and purpose. Where we see the darkness of despair, we need to see the light of hope. Today, Jesus is here. He is asking, “What do you want me to do for you?” Tell Him, “Lord, I want to see!”

Dear Lord, I walk around so blind to the spiritual reality you have for me. I need corrected vision. Holy Spirit, renew my spiritual sight that I may see the truth You have for me. Help me to see hope, joy, peace and love.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
