S9E12: Real Healing (Ordinary Time 2015)

27Oct

Sermon #137

As we look at the healing of blind Bartimaeus on the road to Jericho, we are forced to ask the question of ourselves:  When have I last asked God for real healing?  Not for a cold or a hurt finger but real, deep, life-changing healing.  What Bartimaeus shows us in asking to have his sight restored is that he not only believed that Jesus could heal him, but that he would heal him.  
In this sermon I tell a very personal story of an event that happened just the week before (October 18, 2015).  I do not take lightly what happened to my son, the many people who were praying for him, or the radical and real healing that took place in the half hour trip to the emergency room.  God truly did answer prayer and healed my son, and to God belongs all glory, honor, and praise.
