Re:Verse passage – Matthew 20:29-34 (day five)
“and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him.”
For many years (as a Youth Pastor) I had the privilege of watching High School Seniors graduate and enter into a new chapter of their lives- filled with opportunities for learning and growth as well as freedom (socially, spiritually, and academically). It is always telling how these recent high school graduates react and respond to their newly found freedom. Much in their lives was recalibrated. Freedom is a “funny thing”- freedom is life changing.
Make no mistake, the blind men were asking for freedom. Freedom from their physical condition. Freedom from their social condition. All kinds of implications. New opportunities would come their way upon being healed. Yet, it’s very telling how they immediately used their freedom. They followed Jesus. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. How will you use the freedom Christ gives? Any recalibration needed?
