Matthew 9:27-28 ” As Jesus went out from there, two blind men followed Him, calling out, ‘Have mercy on us, Son of David!’ When He had gone indoors, the blind men came to Him, and He asked them, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do this?’ “

In His personal conversations with people Jesus asked really good questions. And as we read through the Gospels, we can see that Jesus routinely engaged people this way. He asked questions that provoked deeper thinking and personal response. His questions often led a person to the self-realization of where they stood spiritually…as it was with these two blind men. In John 5:6 Jesus saw a paralytic lying near the pool of Bethesda and learned he had been in this condition for a long time (38 years), He asked him, “Do you want to get well?” Or put in laymen’s terms, “Do you have a earnest desire to be healthy, or are you happier with all the attention you receive from everyone and would rather blame others and make excuses than be totally healed?” Yes, Jesus asked really good questions, and in our personal ministry with those around us we should too.
