Preach It

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 8:1-4 (day five) “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed.”  As we look at Jesus’ encounters with the leper and the centurion, we see great faith being displayed by each of them. But don’t miss their testimony.  In both of their statements, there are known and unknown statements about Jesus. The unknown- Jesus’ willingness to heal.  The known- His power, His capability, His authority, His majesty and sovereignty. What is it that you know about Jesus?  What have you already experienced and encountered?  Will you preach to yourself those Gospel truths?  (The goodness and greatness of Jesus)
“Preaching the gospel to ourselves is a habit of grace that is both proactive and reactive. It’s reactive as we encounter temptation and frustration and seek to restock in the moment… But it’s also proactive. We go on the offensive when we feed our souls in some regular rhythm before the events and tasks and disappointments of daily life begin streaming our way.”
