Which way?


A common phrase in the New Testament is one the Savior often uttered after He had healed someone. He often said, "Go thy way," after He had healed someone or comforted them. Those who were healed usually went on their way, some proclaiming what Christ had done for them.

There is one man, however, in the book of Mark, who surprised me when I read about him. He was blind, and asked the Savior to heal him. When Christ had restored His sight, He said to the man, "Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole."

But the man did not go his own way. Instead, he "immediately...received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way." (Mark 10:52.)

He made his way Christ's way.

It made me think of all of the times that the Savior has healed and blessed me...is my way His way, or is it my own way?
