Key Scriptures

Proverbs 29:18

King James Version

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Luke 18:35-43

The Message

35-37 He came to the outskirts of Jericho. 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. They told him, “Jesus the Nazarene is going by.”

38 He yelled, “Jesus! Son of David! Mercy, have mercy on me!”

39 Those ahead of Jesus told the man to shut up, but he only yelled all the louder, “Son of David! Mercy, have mercy on me!”

40 Jesus stopped and ordered him to be brought over. When he had come near, Jesus asked, “What do you want from me?”

41 He said, “Master, I want to see again.”

42-43 Jesus said, “Go ahead—see again! Your faith has saved and healed you!” The healing was instant: He looked up, seeing—and then followed Jesus, glorifying God. Everyone in the street joined in, shouting praise to God.

Luke 18:35-38

New International Version

A Blind Beggar Receives His Sight

35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36 When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”

38 He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

1 Peter 1:19-21

Living Bible

19 But he paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 20 God chose him for this purpose long before the world began, but only recently was he brought into public view, in these last days, as a blessing to you.

21 Because of this, your trust can be in God who raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory. Now your faith and hope can rest in him alone.

Luke 18:39

New King James Version

39 Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Mark 10:49-50

New International Version - UK

49 Jesus stopped and said, ‘Call him.’

So they called to the blind man, ‘Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.’ 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

15 This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:

‘In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.

Romans 8:32

New Living Translation

32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?

Luke 18:42-43

New International Version

42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

Romans 4:16

New Living Translation

16 So the promise is received by faith. It is given as a free gift. And we are all certain to receive it, whether or not we live according to the law of Moses, if we have faith like Abraham’s. For Abraham is the father of all who believe.

Luke 18:43

New International Version

43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

Mark 10:52

New American Standard Bible

52 And Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has [a]made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road.

Philippians 3:15-16

The Message

15-16 So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it.
