Healing the Blind Man at Bethsaida
Jesus empowers us to embrace our humanity in all of its beautiful complexity. The more we express our humanity in loving, healing, forgiving, serving, and rejoicing, the more our divinity or holiness is revealed.
No definition or doctrine fully captures who Jesus Christ is. We are left with an alluring Mystery. Our deepening desire to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ draws us into this mystery of God becoming human for us.
The Grace I Seek
I pray for the following grace: to know Jesus more intimately, to love him more intensely, and to follow him more closely.
Read Mark 8:22–26 (healing of blind man at Bethsaida).
Why do you suppose he needed two doses? of healing I mean. It reminds me of Naaman who had to wash 7 times. What a mystery God is and presents to us.
"I see people, looking like trees and walking." I very much want this to have some mystic significance. I'm sure if I read commentaries I will find it. But for now I will just think about it.
