JESUS HEALS MANY PEOPLE

Today’s Gospel Reading: Luke 4:38-44 -TWENTY-SECOND WEEK OF THE YEAR: Wednesday, 5 September 2018

Jesus also refused to allow His miracles (which He used to concretize His message) to distract from His fundamental message. He realized that a variety of Messianic expectations swirled about in Galilee. There were many people ready to pour His message into prefabricated molds that conformed to what they expected a proper Messiah to be. For this reason, the Lord is unusually careful about the way He is named, addressed and described.

It was crucial that nothing detract from the fundamentally spiritual, and therefore revolutionary, message He brought concerning the reign of God. The personal impact on individuals was most important. Personal depth of faith on individuals was most important. Personal depth of faith came first, although it would be authenticated by the way it was lived out in society. Jesus sternly refused to reverse that priority.

Everything flows from our relationship with the Lord.
