As Jesus departed, two blind men followed him, crying out, “Show us mercy, Son of David.” When he came into the house, the blind men approached him. Jesus said to them, “Do you believe I can do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Then Jesus touched their eyes and said, “It will happen for you just as you have believed.” Their eyes were opened. Then Jesus sternly warned them, “Make sure nobody knows about this.” But they went out and spread the word about him throughout that whole region. As they were leaving, people brought to him a man who was demon-possessed and unable to speak. When Jesus had thrown out the demon, the man who couldn’t speak began to talk. The crowds were amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” But the Pharisees said, “He throws out demons with the authority of the ruler of demons.” (Matthew 9:27-34, CEB)
Do you believe Jesus can heal?
Do you believe the promises?
When Jesus healed people, he told them not to tell anyone, but they always told.
People were coming after Jesus because he was healing. Not because he was loving and living a life different than others.
Are we caught up in the need to be healed that we lose track of the need to love as God loves us?
Do you believe God loves you?
If yes, how are you sharing that love?
Loving People. Loving God.
