Jesus had . . . 1. Willingness to touch the
untouchable
When he came down from the mountainside, large
crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and
knelt before him and said, Lord, if you are
willing, you can make me clean. Jesus reached
out his hand and touched the man. I am willing,
he said. Be clean! Immediately he was cured of
his leprosy. Then Jesus said to him, See that
you dont tell anyone. But go, show yourself to
the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as
a testimony to them. Matthew 81-4

Matthew 84
11
When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion
came to him, asking for help. Lord, he said,
my servant lies at home paralyzed and in
terrible suffering. Jesus said to him, I will
go and heal him. The centurion replied, Lord,
I do not deserve to have you come under my roof.
But just say the word, and my servant will be
healed. For I myself am a man under authority,
with soldiers under me. I tell this one, Go,
and he goes and that one, Come, and he comes.
I say to my servant, Do this, and he does it.
Matthew 85-13
12
When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and
said to those following him, I tell you the
truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with
such great faith. I say to you that many will
come from the east and the west, and will take
their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the subjects
of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the
darkness, where there will be weeping and
gnashing of teeth. Then Jesus said to the
centurion, Go! It will be done just as you
believed it would. And his servant was healed at
that very hour. Matthew
85-13

Jesus had . . . 2. Desire to heal those on the
fringe
Just say the word
14
Jesus had . . . 3. Compassion for the
hurting Jesus fulfills prophecy
When Jesus came into Peters house, he saw
Peters mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
He touched her hand and the fever left her, and
she got up and began to wait on him. When
evening came, many who were demon-possessed were
brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with
a word and healed all the sick. This was to
fulfill what was spoken through the prophet
Isaiah He took up our infirmities and carried
our diseases. Matthew 814-17
15
Jesus had . . . 4. Challenge for pretenders
When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave
orders to cross to the other side of the lake.
Then a teacher of the law came to him and said,
Teacher, I will follow you wherever you
go. Jesus replied, Foxes have holes and birds
of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no
place to lay his head. Another disciple said
to him, Lord, first let me go and bury my
father. But Jesus told him, Follow me, and let
the dead bury their own dead. Matthew 818-22
16
Jesus had . . . 4. Challenge for pretenders
Cost of following Jesus is great, but
the healing is always free
Foxes have holes and birds of the air have
nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his
head. Matthew 820
17
Jesus had . . . 5. Ability to control nature
Then he got into the boat and his disciples
followed him. Without warning, a furious storm
came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over
the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples
went and woke him, saying, Lord, save us! Were
going to drown! He replied, You of little
faith, why are you so afraid? Then he got up
and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was
completely calm. The men were amazed and asked,
What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the
waves obey him! Matthew
823-27

Jesus had . . . 6. Power over Satan
When he arrived at the other side in the region
of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men coming
from the tombs met him. They were so violent
that no one could pass that way. Matthew 828-34
20
What do you want with us, Son of God? they
shouted. Have you come here to torture us before
the appointed time? Some distance from them a
large herd of pigs was feeding. The demons
begged Jesus, If you drive us out, send us into
the herd of pigs. He said to them, Go! So
they came out and went into the pigs, and the
whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the
lake and died in the water. Those tending the
pigs ran off, went into the town and reported all
this, including what had happened to the
demon-possessed men. Then the whole town went
out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they
pleaded with him to leave their region.

part of our worship together. Bread and grape
juice remind us of Jesus love in dying on the
cross for us. The bread represents the body of
Christ the juice represents the blood of
Christ.

All who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior are
welcome to participate. Please place your
empty cup in the pew rack holder. If you prefer
not to participate, please pass the trays to the
next person.

Offering is one way to worship God. Trays are
passed for your giving convenience. Guests,

Everyone, please place your Connecting card in

Each man should give what he has decided in his
heart to give, not reluctantly or under
compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 97 see that you also
excel in this grace of giving. 2
Corinthians 87 Whoever sows sparingly will
also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously
will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 96
