Scripture: Matthew 21:1-17
As he left Jericho and began his very last journey to Jerusalem, Jesus passed two blind men on the side of the road. Hearing he was coming, the men cried out, ‘Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!’ The crowd tried to shut them up and push them aside, but Jesus heard their voices and he stopped. He asked them, ‘what do you want me to do for you?’
‘Lord, we want our sight.’ They called his name; they knew who he was–but they couldn’t see him.
And so–Jesus gave it to them and immediately they could see and began to follow him.
On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus opened their eyes so they could see. And once they could see, they began to follow.
And now we are entering into Holy Week. Like those men on the side of the road–we also know who Jesus is, but there is still so much we can’t see. We too need our eyes opened.
