I Want To See


As the man came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”
Luke 18:40-41 (NLT)

It’s the perfect story. A blind beggar is sitting on the side of the road and hears a commotion. He asks what is going on and is told that Jesus is walking by. He had heard of the miracles Jesus had performed so he begins to shout over and over, “Jesus, Son of David have mercy on me!” The people in front of him told him, “be quiet” but he didn’t care, he only shouted louder. And Jesus heard him. Jesus told him to come forward and asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man barely containing himself says, “Lord, I want to see!” Jesus full of compassions said, “All right, receive your sight! Your faith has healed you.” I remember reading this as a young man in complete awe. It was one of the first sermons I gave when I was fifteen years old. And today, almost fifty years later, I still look for the Lord as I sit on the side of the road. So many times I have been blind but every time the Lord has had compassion on me. Today, what can’t you see? What do you want Jesus to do for you? He is passing by, go ahead and shout out!

Oh, my dear Jesus, I am just a blind beggar on the side of the road. I need You. I am shouting out, “Have mercy on me!” Help me Lord to see, see everything You want me to see.

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.
