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.

Musing Through Matthew- Faith That Makes Whole

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:22 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we find the evidence of faith that makes whole. It is just the touch of a finger that sends a message of faith to the King of Kings and the answer is returned immediately. He does not chide her but calls her daughter establishing Father ship over her. His response to her is thy faith hath made the whole. Her bowing to His Lordship had made her whole. It only takes a little faith to get us to heaven but great faith to bring heaven to us.

Musing Through Matthew-O To Just Touch Him

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:20-21 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we find while our Lord is in route to Jairus house to heal his daughter a women comes thru the crowd and touches the hem of His garment. She has an issue of blood disease for 12 years. She came from behind Him because of a great fear of His holiness she would not dare face Him. She came down low for His hem was at ground level. She had the faith that if she could but touch Him she would be made whole and she was. May we this day long for O to just touch Him.

Musing Through Matthew-Do We Trust Now As They Did Then

Let us muse again today from Matthew 9:18-19 and the theme of Jesus the King. While our Lord is discussing old testament rituals there is one who comes with a need. He steps down as a teacher puts on His robe as the great physician for one is near death or possible already dead. A gentile ruler comes to Him who worships Him, trust him, and believes that just a touch from this man will make his daughter whole. My question is this do we trust now as they did then?

Musing Through Matthew- New Wine In Old Bottles

Let us muse  today from Matthew 9:17 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our text for today we find some thoughts on putting new wine in old bottles. John the Baptist followers were trying to hold on to the old testament tradition while trying to follow Jesus. Jesus refused to pour the new wine of the Holy Ghost into these old bottles of traditionalism. I fear many Baptist today are trying to live on the Old Testament side of the cross instead of the New Testament side were all is finished.. On this side of the cross man is judged by the state of his heart and not the style of his dress. Let us do as Augustine once said “love God with all your heart and then do as you please”.
