Matthew 9:27–31 (ESV)

Jesus Heals Two Blind Men

27 And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” 28 When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” 29 Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” 30 And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about it.” 31 But they went away and spread his fame through all that district.

 

These two blind men were healed.  They are no longer blind.  They are told to “See that no one knows about it.”  Well, they couldn’t contain themselves and to go and tell others.  The Lutheran Study Bible states: “Jesus answers the blind men’s cry for mercy by restoring their sight. He urges the Pharisees to acquire the same virtue (9:13; 12:7). In the OT, God describes Himself as “merciful and gracious” (Ex 34:6), and His Son demonstrates this same divine attribute. We are truly blessed to receive God’s mercy (5:7).”

 

 

I pray:  Heavenly Father, may we who have received mercy also show mercy. Forgive me for the many times I have failed to show mercy to others. Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
