Daily Word Of God

Luke 18:35-43

As Jesus drew near to Jericho there was a blind man sitting at the side of the road begging. When he heard the crowd going past he asked what it was all about, and they told him that Jesus the Nazarene was passing by. So he called out, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me.’ The people in front scolded him and told him to keep quiet, but he only shouted all the louder, ‘Son of David, have pity on me.’

Jesus stopped and ordered them to bring the man to him, and when he came up, asked him, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ ‘Sir,’ he replied, ‘let me see again.’

Jesus said to him, ‘Receive your sight. Your faith has saved you.’ And instantly his sight returned and he followed him praising God, and all the people who saw it gave praise to God.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • The blind man felt the presence of Jesus and he believed that Jesus would cure him. Have you ever felt the presence and the closeness of Jesus in your daily life? What was the intimate feeling like?


  • Seeking God in our life is not a “once in a while” event. We should be seeking Him in our lives daily.


  • We receive favours from God all the time. How often do we praise and thank Him for them?
