“There were two blind men sitting at the roadside . . . they said to Jesus. ‘Let our eyes be opened.’ Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed Him” (Matthew 20:30, 33-34)
Jesus was a man with intense compassion. When the crowd saw the blind men they saw a nuisance, and yelled for them to be quiet. (Matthew 20:31)
But Jesus couldn’t ignore them.
Neither can He ignore you.
In Revelation 3:20, Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. Anyone who opens the door to me, I will come in and dine with you, and you with Me.”
We don’t have to go far to find Jesus. He is knocking on the door of our hearts, eager to enter our souls and allow us to begin living a life for the Lord.
Jesus’ compassion stretches out to all men and women, yet it is especially presented to the hurting because it is often they who recognize their desperate need for His healing.
Rarely does someone on the mountain top feel the need for saving. So they don’t ask.
But often, when we have hit rock-bottom and have nowhere else to go, no one else to turn to, that our gaze shifts toward heaven and the healing powers of Jesus.
Suppose you have already come to Jesus and experienced His love, but for one reason or another you have turned your back on Him and walked away. You may have journeyed far, far away, and feel as if you are too far to return.
Friend, Jesus has been there with you every step of the way, no further from you than your ear to the side of your head.
Just turn around – back toward Jesus – and away from sin.
Ask for forgiveness and it will be yours.
No matter how many times you slip, or how many times you fall, Jesus will have compassion, and your hurts can be healed.
You will be healed, if you let Him.
