And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. And behold, there were two blind men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” The crowd rebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” And stopping, Jesus called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.
Matthew 20:29-34 (ESV)
"Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!" This is the cry of all true believers in Christ. You may not be physically blind, but your were born into sin and blind to the truth about God. Fortunately God has made Himself known through His Son Jesus. God became man and tabernacled among us. He lived a sinless life and demonstrated His divinity through His teachings and miraculous signs. He then died on the cross and took upon Himself the wrath of God. By doing this, He paid the penalty for your sins.
Just like these two blind men, you are helpless to fix your circumstances. There was nothing they could do that would allow them to see, and you cannot do anything to free yourself from the bondage of your sin. They needed mercy and so do you.
Jesus pitied these two blind men and touched their eyes. He rescued them from darkness. He healed them of their malady. He can do the same for you. He can free you from darkness. He can break the chains of your sins. Repent and believe this good news. Jesus died for you. Three days later He rose from the dead, defeating sin, death and the devil. Christ's victory has been determined. Trust in Him and be set free from your sin. Jesus will show His mercy to you.
