What Do You Want?

In Matthew 20, Jesus is about to pass by a couple blind men when they call out to Him. Despite the huge crowd trying to get them to shut up (I wonder why they wanted them to be quiet, anyway…), they shouted out for mercy. And amid the clamor, Jesus heard.

“What do you want me to do for you?”

Moved by compassion at their plea for mercy, Jesus offers what they want. He gives them what they ask for. He awakens their long dormant eyes… and the blind men see. Jesus was on the move from Jericho toward Jerusalem, and immediately they followed Him.

Do you know that Jesus is still on the move? He is still working to restore all things into right relationship with His Father. As He is going about His business, He still hears those who call out for His mercy. And He still delivers.

“What do you want me to do for you?”

Don’t miss His question. Your answer builds your future. He won’t do for you what you should be doing for yourself, but He will do for you what only He can do – and that is immeasurably more than you can imagine! So what do you want? What are you asking Him to do in your life? Before you take off into 2018 with great intentions… Before you watch your best year ever melt into yet another spring puddle of those great intentions, take some time to ponder. What do I really want Jesus to do for me? (And what does He want to do for me?)

What will you do when He does it?
