39 “Be quiet!” the people in front yelled at him.
But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
40 When Jesus heard him, he stopped and ordered that the man be brought to him. As the man came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?”
“Lord,” he said, “I want to see!”
42 And Jesus said, “All right, receive your sight! Your faith has healed you.” 43 Instantly the man could see, and he followed Jesus, praising God. And all who saw it praised God, too. (Luke 18:35-43 NLT)
The blind man saw something very few others could see. He saw that Jesus was the Son of David, the Promised Savior. He believed that Jesus would have mercy and give him the ability to see. Jesus did. The Blind Man first saw Jesus with the eyes of faith and then saw Him with his own eyes.
We can see Jesus now with the eyes of faith. When He returns, we will see Him with our own eyes.
