The Bible tells us of a man by the name of who sat on the road side begging people money when they past by. This was a way of life for Bartimaeus because he could not find much work because of his blindness.

For years sat on the road side begging money. He was a professional beggar. He was good at this. However, even though he was below his privilege, he was not comfortable in the state that he was in, but he felt trapped.

Blind Bartimaeus

Until one day he heard a commotion. This was not an ordinary commotion as people were rushing and making lots of noise, more than the usual; so asked what was happening and he heard that of Nazareth was passing by and suddenly he saw his deliverance.

You see blind Bartimaeus heard stories about Jesus that everywhere he went people were being delivered from sickness, demonic oppression and possession, the blind being healed, crippled walk and so on. The people knew Jesus as Jesus of Nazareth, but Bartimaeus knew him as the Messiah, the Son of David.

Blind Bartimaeus had a need and he wasn’t about to be silence by people.

Because of his determination, Jesus called him over and he got his healing- he received his sight. So what lessons can we learn from Blind Bartimaeus?
