Throwing off the dirty cloak

We have heard the story of blindman Bartinaeus over and over again. Our pastors and priests have given a lot of lessons from it so much that we are all conversant with the story.

However, there’s one striking lesson I would also want to share. You may have heard it already.

I would want us to centre on Mark 10:50, http://goo.gl/SCLQH though it’s important to refresh your mind from verse 46.

After the jabs, insults and Bartimaeus’ persistence to see Jesus, he finally gets that opportunity, so Jesus calls him.

Bartimaeus makes a gesture that is worth commenting about and that is “throwing off his cloak he sprang up and came to Jesus”.

I ask myself why he has to throw off his cloak only when Jesus has called him.

This cloak has always been with him to the very knowledge of everyone in Jericho.

Bartimaeus is simple teaching us that before we go to Jesus, there are certain dirty cloaks (hatred, envy, licentiousness, corruption, anger, pride, selfishness etc) in our lives that needs to be thrown away.

Sometimes we pray and fast just to see something we desire most come to fruition but we never see it.

Sometimes too, we feel being called to a ministry but we’re still not excelling.

Have we thought of the cloak (sin) we are till clinging on to? Have we considered that without the cloak (addiction) which has become heavy because of filth, we will actually feel lighter, and will also give us the agility to go to Jesus as swift as a thunder light?

When you’re called, remember to leave behind your dirty cloak because it’s not worth going before the Lord with such filth.

Till next time…….
