The Winning team!

 " And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.
  And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that     Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David. And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?  They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him." (Matt 20:29-34)

               Some reading this may ask, Pastor Angel, we read this yesterday. Yes, we did read it yesterday but these verses have some meat in it. Notice when you read these passages, You will find that two blind men yelled-"Have mercy on us!" The multitude surrounding them were bothered by their insistence and told them to shut up, but they did not give up.
                  Notice their persistence to get Jesus attention. They were not intimated by the crowd. How many of us have invited a loved one to our church and everybody is dancing and shouting, but you want to look "COOL" before your friend of family member? We have a lot to shout about-We have Jesus and we are in the winning team! The Superbowl is coming up and soon, people will gather around the TV, cheering or cursing out their team. Some will even jump up,yell and act crazy!
                 Friend, if you are a Christian, You have a lot to shout about. Not only are you saved, but you have all the answers to your problems in the Bible!
You have the best physician that can heal your body. You have better financial investments than Wall Street. You have protection mercies and are highly favored. That, my friend, is a lot to get excited about. Find out what you have in Christ Jesus because you are on the winning team!
