Jesus Shows Mercy

A Truth to Live – God created the world beautiful and good. But the sinful choices of humankind have filled it with self-focused endeavors, evil perpetrators, sickness, disease, tragedy, pain and brokenness. The reason God sent His only Son to earth was to destroy the works of evil (John 3:8) and to demonstrate His mercy toward me!

Scripture – “When blind Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by, he began to shout, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!’ ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ Jesus asked him. The blind man said, ‘Rabbi, I want to see.’ ‘Go,’ said Jesus, ‘your faith has healed you’.” Mark 10:46-52

Prayer – Jesus, I am grateful today for Your never-ending mercy. Like the blind man on the side of the road I am calling out for You to heal me and make me see.  Help me to point my faith toward You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
