When Jesus Descends The Mountain
January 8, 2023
We looked at Matthew 8, a true whirlwind of miracles and healings during Jesus’s ministry on earth. Jesus healed the sick, calmed a violent storm, and cast out demons from men possessed by darkness.
As Yi Khen preached on the passage, we saw that Jesus’s miracles provoke a response from us. If he held such divine power, he can’t have been only a teacher. Much more than that, he is the Son of Man who was prophesied and sent by God. And importantly, his healings were a sign of the greater healing he brings to humanity: healing from our sin.
We were encouraged and challenged to respond with costly faith in Jesus — to rest more deeply in his work on the cross for us, while being willing to bear costly discomforts for the sake of following him.
