Rev. Steve DeNeff - Isaiah 6:8-10, Mark 10:46-52. At the bottom of every miracle is a touch from Jesus on the desire of one who knows he is blind: “What do you want me to do for you?” (Mark 10:51). Against the idea that the gospel will solve all our problem, this sermon will suggest that the gospel actually reveals what our real problems are. To know that we are blind is our real problem, and to put ourselves in position, then to cry out, “Lord, I want to see!” is the first and last habit of those who continually see the unseen. But how do we posture ourselves for this miracle? Who are the people that can bring us to Jesus? What does it really mean to cry out?
