He was fleeing for his life but he came across the Giver of Life that could change his life.
I still remember being enthralled when reading a brief but touching passage involving a healing through Christ. To this day, the more I read that passage the more awesome treasure I find about the Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jesus continues teaching the people who had gathered to hear Him speak on the mountain in Matthew chapter seven. The things which Jesus taught to the people amazed the people, because He taught them as one having authority to teach these things unlike their priests who teach Moses’ Teachings do.
In Matthew chapter six, the Lord Jesus Christ continues teaching from the Mountain also known as "The Sermon on the Mountain". In this chapter, the Lord Jesus Christ goes on to teach us several important lessons that will help us live according to His (GOD’S) Will for our lives and at the very same time we learn the heart of GOD towards us.
Matthew chapter eight is a message of faith, of hope and of love. Jesus is besought by a leper, a Roman (Gentile) army officer, a friend, His followers, two demon processed men and even devils to have mercy on them.
Most people do not know it, but each of us needs the mercy of God. When one realizes they need His mercy, the Word of God assures us there is plenty within Him.
The news is always bustling with something, is it not? It sort of reminds me of how the wind might kick up every now and then right before a bad storm.
To many, sad to say, life without a true commitment to Christ is a pleasurable one, but that is only because their sin nature is in agreement with their sinful lifestyle. But, every now and then, some either develop a gnawing sense that something is wrong, or eventually their sinful life becomes a stench to them.
We are now living in times when people whom we can trust are scarce. Government and non-government organizations fail. Even the best person among us is only human and can only do so much. However, there is One whom we can trust because he is faithful.
GOD’S Not DEAD beautifully tells the story of a young Christian man who while attending college is challenged to compromise his faith in God by his atheist philosophy professor.
