Desperate for Jesus

A blind man was sitting beside the road 
asking for handouts. 
When he heard the rustle of the crowd, 
he asked what was going on. The told him, 
"Jesus the Nazarene is going by."

He yelled, "Jesus! Son of David!" 
Mercy, have mercy on me!" 
Luke 18:35-38

 Then Jesus entered and walked through Jericho. 
There was a man there, his name Zacchaeus, 
the head tax man and quite rich. 
He wanted desperately to see Jesus, 
but the crowd was in his way — 
he was a short man and 
couldn't see over the crowd. 
So he ran on ahead and climbed up 
in a sycamore tree so 
he could see Jesus when He came by.
Luke 19:1-4

Two men
Two blind men
One physically blind
One spiritually blind

Desperate for Jesus

Crowds of people
blocked their way
kept them from Jesus

Deep desire
Drove them

Yelling out
Climbing up
They reached for Him

And He came
