In today's Gospel passage we hear about a blind beggar who receives his sight from Jesus.
What is so special about this blind man's faith? Once he hears that Jesus is there, he immediately begins to ask mercy of Jesus as Messiah. But he also has an unstoppable faith, a faith that won't take no for an answer. The crowd tells him to be quiet, and yet he calls out even louder. He has an intensity of desire that overcomes obstacles, rebuke, and embarrassment to achieve what he desires, physical and spiritual healing from our Lord, God, and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jesus is a bridge to the Father, always pointing people to a relationship with the Father. Jesus is trying to make people trust God on their own. Many can see Jesus only, but Jesus keeps encouraging their faith and pointing them to our Father in heaven.
May we too, receive our spiritual sight to see and follow our Lord, God, and Savior, Jesus Christ!
