Jesus Is on the Move



Brad Jones preaches through Luke 18:35-43, shedding light on the power of the story of the blind beggar asking for sight and encouraging us to ask God for the same in our own lives, leaving us attuned to His will and desires for us.

Key Takeaway

It’s dangerously easy for us to be around the things of God and miss out completely on what He’s doing.

If Jesus is on the move—am I moving with Him? Am I going to be on the journey with Him? Is there a focus, determination, or sacrifice to being on the journey? Our one fleeting life needs to count for what matters most.

We have access to the Father. We get to commune and converse with Him. We don’t have to shout or beg; in Jesus, we all have access to the Father through the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:18).

Are we asking God to make our lives more comfortable or more significant? We’re too focused on asking Him for what we think we need than what He wants for us.

The man in Luke received physical sight. Although he couldn’t see Jesus with his eyes, he had more spiritual sight than most of the crowd following Jesus. The people in the crowd could see Jesus, but they couldn’t see His heart.


1. God, would you help me see who You are?

  • The blind man had a sense and a belief in God before he could see.
  • He’s more than a man from Galilee. (Colossians 1:15-19)
  • We want to see the power of God. (Ephesians 3:18)

2. God, help me see what you want me to do.

  • Is this a prayer we’re praying?
  • Is this a prayer we like to ask?
  • Many of us are good at asking God this when we have a big life decision, but Jesus wants us to seek Him in every area of our lives.
  • Those who led the way were the ones who rebuked the blind man.
  • We get out of the position of Jesus—we start trying to lead Him.
  • We were never meant for the lead position—we were always meant to follow. Let’s let Him lead us.
  • We start trusting in our own strength.
  • Our shoulders weren’t meant for the lead position—we were designed to draft.
  • We aren’t meant to lead but to follow.
  • When we’re leading and not following, we miss what he’s doing.
  • It’s not about Him getting on our page but about us getting us on His page.
  • Align my heart with your heart. Align my will with your will—not just in the big moments, but in every moment.
  • What do you want from me when no one is watching?
  • We will go further and more fulfilled when we draft off of Jesus.

3. God, help me see who You see.

  • What they saw was a blind beggar and assumed there wasn’t much use or time for that guy. They thought this man would slow them down. They thought he didn’t matter.
  • Let’s be a Church that sees people the way you see people. He sees circumstances and potential.
  • Luke 18:40–Jesus stopped. He wasn’t too busy for the marginalized, poor, or the cast aside. He stopped and looked the man in the eye and loved him. He healed and saved him. We want to have eyes that see Jesus like this.
  • I want to be on the front side of miracles, believing in God's power to change anyone at any time.

4. God, help me see that You see me.

  • There are moments when you feel unseen, forgotten, or abandoned. What you need is the confidence that God sees you and knows what you’re going through.
  • Life is hard, and the world is broken, but God is still good.
  • It may not happen immediately, but God sees you and has the power to change everything.
  • The miracle the man in this story was even bigger than his sight—He got salvation.
