Mark 10: 51-52 ” ‘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.’ Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.”

The Scene: Blind man’s gear: a broken pair of glasses and a cane–the tools of a spiritually blind person (now broken by God’s Word).

Mankind is always blind to God’s truth, until he has been taught, has read the Word for himself, and believes the Holy Scripture’s truth. Then that person is no longer blind to the Word. The Word is implanted in one’s mind to see the mystery of God revealed: Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior–Lord of all who will accept Him. They now see clearly.

Jesus taught the people the Word–He healed their physical bodies, minds, and spirits, as well. Their blindness, dullness* to the Word was gone. *dullness: Ephesians 4:18 ” They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.” They were made to see the truth of the Word and became true believers, their sight was restored and they could believe for themselves, led by the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 4:4 “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.”
