Re:Verse passage – Matthew 8:14-17 (day seven)

As we work our way through these miracles, we see that Jesus is healing these people organically. I don’t mean this like He is feeding them healthy organic food, rather that this process is coming very natural to Him. It is in His normal pattern of life. Jesus is not going out of His way to find these individuals. Many of them are coming to Him, but the reason they are even coming to Him is because the rumor of His authentic and organic works are beginning to trickle out into the public. Jesus isn’t putting on a show. It is simple. It is the touch of a hand, the utterance of a word, in His friend’s house, on His road home. Simple, yet profound. The way Jesus approaches this situation begs us to ask a question of ourselves: who are the people in our normal pattern of life that are hurting and in need? Lord Jesus give us Your vision to see those around us who need You!

  1. Great blog. Spot on, “who are the people in our normal pattern of life that are hurting and in need?”

    That is the question I ask myself often during this Christmas season. It does help in developing giving strategies and managing priorities to reach out within a budget that is allocated for charitable purpose.
