What Is It You Want Me To Do for You?

If you met Jesus face to face and he asked you, "What do you want me to do for you?", how would you answer that question? Today we look at Mark 10:46-52 to see how a blind beggar, Bartimaeus, responded. But first we sang "Open Our Eyes Lord" and the "Untitled Hymn" (Come to Jesus) during our time of praise:

Do You Really Want to Go to Heaven?

But what if heaven is God-focused instead of self-focused? Today's sermon, from Mark 10:17-31, challenges most people's view of heaven.
