The Blind Beggar’s Faith – Mark 10: 46-52
In the Gospel Story today, Jesus heals Bartimaeus on the spot with the words; “Your faith has made you well.” Do you sometimes feel pressure, when you read a healing story like this? I do. What if I need urgent healing, and my faith is not strong enough to initiate the mystery of healing? It was good for my soul to review some of Luther’s writings in this respect this month! In “the Freedom of a Christian”, Luther makes the point that our relationship with Jesus does not depend on the state of our health or wealth or reputation. Jesus is with us, no matter what.
