Musing Through Matthew-Eyes Opened, Mouth Shut

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:30-31 and the theme of Jesus the King. I find today in our study our Lord opens the eyes of the blind men but commands them to keep their mouth shut. Our Lord needs nothing from us but obedience. They went and told it to all. Oh how easy it is for us to think we are doing a spiritual thing when all the while we are living in disobedience to the Lord. The heart is very deceitful be careful with what it tells us to do.

Musing Through Matthew-Faith Tested

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:29 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we see the faith of the blind men tested. Our Lord touched their eyes and then said, according to your faith be it unto you. Faith always receives less or more depending upon its capacity to receive. He touched the eyes with His hand but they must now touch Him with their faith. My faith has found a resting place in Him alone.

Musing through Matthew-Inquiry Of Faith

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:28 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our study we see the blind men following Jesus into the house. Jesus does not ask about their eyes but makes an inquiry of their faith in the question, believe ye that I am able to do this? In their request on the road they called Him the Son of David and now they called Him Lord when they said, yea Lord, confirming their bowing in their heart to His Lordship by faith. If we are to receive anything from Him it will be by faith and faith alone bowing to Him.

Musing through Matthew The Prayer Of Mercy

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9: 27 and the theme of Jesus King. In our study for today we find a prayer of Mercy. It originates from two men who are blind. Oh how the unknown causes a desire for mercy. The request is addressed to the Son of David. These men realized that true mercy resides with royalty. They are persevering, they are following, and continually crying out to Jesus. Mercy is the most prayed prayer in the Bible. It is only denied one time for the rich man in hell who asked for mercy and water. Let us remember mercy is always available in this life but not for a lost man in the life of to come.

Musing Through Matthew- Fame And Its Knowledge

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:26 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we learn of fame and its knowledge. In Church visitation programs it is often for the purpose of inviting people to Christ and letting them know what is going on at the church. I think if God began to raise dead sinners from the grave of their sins we could stay all visitation programs. The fame of dead sinners living, blind people seeing would be known far and wide.

Musing Through Matthew- Noise And Silence

Let us muse today from Matthew 9;25 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we are confronted with the difference between noise and silence. When our Lord arrives at Jairus house he clears it of all the people. This group was wailing and making noise. I find that our Lord seldom does His great miraculous work in the midst of noise and activity but when we are being quiet and still before Him. In the text before us He says nothing to the girl. He only touches her and she arose. Let us be still today, cease from noise and activity it may be our Lord will pass by and touch us.

Musing Through Matthew- Give Place

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:23-24 and the theme of Jesus the King. When Jesus and Jairus arrive at his house they were met with the professional mourners and music makers who were making ready for a funeral. Our Lord steps up on the threshold of the door and cries “give place”. This is a term of one who is exercising authority over the whole house. Somewhere between his first encounter with Jesus and his house Jairus has given Jesus authority over his whole house. Although they laughed at our Lord when He said she is just asleep it did not deter Him from His work of raising her from the dead. May we give him the place of authority at our houses and it may be we shall stand in awe of what He may do.
