Sermon Text: Mark 10:46-52 (NLT) - Then they reached Jericho, and as Jesus and his disciples left town, a large crowd followed him. A blind beggar named Bartimaeus (son of Timaeus) was sitting beside the road. When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” “Be quiet!” many of the people yelled at him. But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” When Jesus heard him, he stopped and said, “Tell him to come here.” So they called the blind man. “Cheer up,” they said. “Come on, he’s calling you!” Bartimaeus threw aside his coat, jumped up, and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked. “My Rabbi,[a]” the blind man said, “I want to see!” And Jesus said to him, “Go, for your faith has healed you.” Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus down the road.
Point 1: - When you need to be blessed, delivered, or healed, you can call for Jesus, and He will hear you! - Isaiah 65:24 (NLT) - I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
Point 2: When you’re ready for your blessing, deliverance, or healing, no one can keep you from calling on Jesus! - Philippians 4:6 (NLT) - Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Point 3: When you get your blessing, deliverance, or healing you will thank God with a loud voice of praise and then follow Jesus! - Psalm 18:49 (NKJV) - Therefore I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the [a]Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.
