Jesus Heals Two Blind Men
Reflection on the Gospel of the Friday In The First Week Of Advent
Chapter 9 of Matthew’s gospel is an account of the many miracles that Jesus worked during his ministry in Capernaum. Jesus has just done so many healings along the way, healed the paralytic, met with Matthew the tax collector and asks him to follow him, answers the questions of John’s disciples, brought back a dead girl to life while on the way healing the women with hemorrhages. Phew! it seems like one busy and hectic day for Jesus.. a day full of action for Jesus.
Then as he moves on, two blind men also shout out to Jesus to be healed.. but Jesus is patient and asks them if they have confidence in him to be healed and their response is a very confident YES!
All the above persons were healed ‘in faith’ and ‘through faith’ they received the grace from Jesus himself. Jesus is willing to listen to us and even respond. All we need to do is Ask and have faith in him that he will answer our prayers.
Trust in the Lord and don’t despair… he is a friend so true. No matter what your troubles are, Jesus will see you through.
