Question Jesus Asked [2]: What do you want me to do for you?


Read:  And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” They *said to Him, “Lord, we want our eyes to be opened.”  Mat 20:32

Examine: Once during ministry, Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd was following. Two blind men who were sitting by the road heard that Jesus was passing by, so they began to shout, “Son of David! Take pity on us, sir!”

The crowd scolded them and told them to be quiet. But they shouted even more loudly, “Son of David! Take pity on us, sir!”

Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked them.

“Sir,” they answered, “we want you to give us our sight!”

In Mathew it says, Jesus had pity on them and touched their eyes; at once they were able to see, and they followed him. In the gospel of Luke it says – Jesus said to him, “Then see! Your faith has made you well.”

Application: Hearing of Jesus, with all obstructions and limitation, sincere cry for help, stopped Jesus. The profound question that Jesus asked, what do you want me to do for you? If the same question is asked to us, what will be our reply?

When we are aware of our blindness, especially spiritual side and then we know Jesus is the solution. That insight itself is grace of God. How do we respond to this knowledge, do we really cry out to Jesus for sight.

The answer that the blind men gave, Sir we want you to give us our sight. Jesus, I want to forgiveness, give me spiritual eye sight and fill me with the Holy Spirit to live a holy life. To this desperate cry and request, it says Jesus had pity, we have a Lord who sympathizes in our weakness when we cry out. Jesus touched the eyes that did not have sight, we need touch where we are blind, they received sight, Jesus is powerful to give us sight.

Decision: The story ends up in the gospel stating they followed Jesus, how likely when we receive our answers we stopped following. Jesus helps me to follow you always. Show me the blindness that I have, teach me to cry out to receive your touch. Enable to ask the right things and strengthen me to follow you all the days of my life.
