Sermon Notes

July 6 & 7, 2019

Luke 18:35-43

“A blind man receives his sight”

“He can Smile”


Four stages that Bartimaeus goes through:

1.  His blindness 

2.  His belief

3.  His boldness 

4.  His blessing 


He experienced four changes:

1.  A change of focus

2.  A change of direction 

3.  A change of purpose 

4.  A change of scope


Friends what stage are you at today?

You are precious to God.
