Luke 18:39 (KJV) So Much the More

Luke 18:39 (KJV)
And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
As Jesus moved through the city crowds of people gathered. Each one had their own motives. Not all of them were sincere and selfless.
The blind man, unable to move along with the crowd, did the only thing he could do, he called out to get Jesus’ attention. This, of course, was unsettling to the crowd seeking Christ’s attention for themselves. These were not the disciples. These were the shallow self seekers. These were onlookers.
We will discover that those who pretend to be near Jesus but have no living relationship to Jesus get very upset when their own agenda is disrupted by earnest faith. Should we give in to them? Should we tone down our Christianity for their sakes? That’s not the lesson of this event. He cried out so much the more.
The more we find we need Jesus the more earnestly we must cry out to Him.
