The healing of blind Bartimaeus highlighted a heart receptive to salvation. Helpless along the roadside, Bartimaeus was unafraid to vocalize his need, even while a boisterous crowd mocked his cries. Alistair Begg asks us to consider whether we will follow Bartimaeus’ example: Will we humbly ask Jesus for mercy? Or will we remain spiritually blinded by our pride? Regardless of where we find ourselves, we can be assured that Jesus will never ignore the cry of a repentant heart.
