Matthew 20. "See, but Blind?" Sunday October 22, 2017, 11am Two blind men, were able, to see Jesus, but, It, is so sad, that many, who can see, are blind to Jesus. We, must pray, for the people, that the Bible says, can see, but are blind; that GOD, will send, on them, whatever it takes, to open their eyes, to salvation. Do we have, a burning desire, to be great? It is so simple that anyone can do it, become a servant. Jesus said, by human standards, the person is great, if they, are in charge, of lots of people or they make, lots of money. But in GOD's kingdom, to be great, we must be servant of all. How to be a servant? A servant is someone who follows Jesus' command in Matt 22:37: Jesus said unto him thou shalt love the Lord thy GOD with all thine heart, soul and mind. 38: This is the first and great commandment and the second is like unto the first. 39: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. Not only, must a servant, show GOD's love, but, must be available, to minister to, the ones in need. Our greatest need, is for our youth, to know the fundamentals, of GOD's holy word. Every chance, we have, we must educate them, about the scriptures. On the other hand, many of our youth, are following, GOD's holy word and we, must pray, that temptation, will not be so strong, to tempt them, to do whatever is right, in their own eyes. Salvation, is not based on our works, or what age, we accept Christ, as our savior. Now, having said that, the next step is to learn the scripture that GOD has furnished us, so we will, do good works. We are not to be proud of our works, but continue to be humble and giving GOD the glory. A. Salvation, must come, even if at a later age. 1-16 B. Jesus explains that he will be crucified and shall rise again 17-19 C. Take these positions, to make us great; minister, servant. 20-28 D. Please Lord, we need so many blind eyes to be opened. 29-34 May GOD through His son Jesus bless you with His grace and peace multiplied
