A simple post today…

A prayer.

Mark 10:46-52 relates to us the healing of the blind man, Bartimaeus.  The part that struck me this morning was his reaction to being healed by Jesus.

And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me recover my sight.” And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.
(Mark 10:51-52 ESV)

Jesus said, “Go your way.”

From Gill’s Exposition on the Entire Bible:

  • And Jesus said unto him, go thy way,…. The Syriac version reads, it, “see”; receive thy sight, be it unto thee as thou dost desire; and which is the sense of, “go thy way”: to to thine own house, or place of abode; and about thy business; thy request is granted:

And Bartimaeus “followed him.”

From Gill’s Exposition on the Entire Bible:

  • for, as this man, when he had received his sight from Christ, followed him in the way; so the people of God, being enlightened by Christ, follow him as their leader and commander, as the captain of their salvation, as the shepherd of the flock, as their guide and forerunner, as their pattern and exemplar, and as the light of the world: him they follow and imitate

My prayer for the day?  When Jesus says to me “Go about your business, my child”, my business would be to follow Him.

In all things.

What’s your prayer for the day?
