"What do you want me to do for you?" Mark 10:51 (NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT This was one of the first passages I ever preached on. I was a teenager giving a gospel message. I remember still to this day the impact this simple passage had on me. Here was this blind man sitting by the road and he hears that Jesus was coming by. Nothing could shut him up. He started shouting out to Jesus. The disciples tried to make him quiet down, but Jesus tells them to bring the man to Him. I love what happens next. Jesus looks at him and says to the blind man, "What do you want me to do for you?" The blind man simply answers, "I want to see." What appealed to me then as a teenager still appeals to me forty years later. It is the sincerity of Jesus and the invitation of His question to tell Him what it is that we want. This is the same Jesus that we pray to. It is the same heart of Christ that bids us come to Him. It is the same power available that asks such an open- ended question. Today, see Him passing your way. Take the time to sit before Him and answer His question, "What do you want me to do for you?" .

TODAY'S PRAYER Jesus, I thank You for coming my way today. I thank You that You care so much for me that You would ask me what I need from You. I hear You say, "What do you want me to do?" I come silently before You and whisper my request. - Thank You, Lord, for hearing the desire of my heart. AMEN
