Road to Nazareth: A Blind Faith

 Prescription

Take two tablets , 3 Xs a day. One tbsp. cough mixture 4 Xs a day. If fever, take 2 tablets every 4 hours. Drink plenty of water, no oily and spicy food. Take plenty of rest.

With this the doctor sends you  away with his  magic portion to heal your ailments.  You go home , dutifully and trustingly carry out his every instruction. Why?

Matt 9:27-31  On this occasion, Jesus was in his own land of Nazareth where He grew up. He had just raised  the ruler’s daughter from death and healed the woman who had an issue of blood for the last 12 years. Such events must have spread like wild fire into all the surrounding land.  As Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying,”Son of David, have mercy on us!”.  They then followed Him into  the house. Jesus asked them, “Do you believe I can do this?” They answered, “Yes, Lord.” Then Jesus touched their eyes, saying “According to your faith, let it be to you.” In that instant, their eyes were opened.  When they left they declared the good news to all that country.

What about us? We placed our blind faith on a pilot who most times cruise his plane on autopilot, flies us into empty space with miles and miles of clouds and nothing else. We placed our faith in wealth, in our business, even in our dog!. Many of these things kept us glued to them but when it comes to Jesus, we asked for signs and evidence. We are like Thomas John 20: who has eyes but could not see.  Jesus said, ” Thomas, Thomas……. be not faithless but believing. …Blessed are they who have not seen me and yet have believed.” 

 Today, has your life been touched or have you touched someone’s life? The two blind men did. Jesus touched their lives.

    Whoa! Suddenly I popped in and so many posts. Hey, you didn’t lose touch with your writings. I hope and pray Jesus touched my eldest sister’s life as she will be going for her eye treatment. I prayed that she meets something in the hospital to share the gospel with her. I tried but she told me that she would leave her life to fate. Sigh.
