This is the third part in ‘Why Jesus is the greatest of all’. Pastor Bill speaks on Christ as our Healer, from Matthew 15:21-31. This is the story of Christ and the Canaanite woman; whom He puts off. The woman however won’t be put off and presses in all the more to Him and receives the reward of her persistence. Her daughter is healed. And then Jesus heals the multitude who bring their sick to Him. At the end of all that, the people glorified God. What is remarkable about this is that it occurs in the area of Gentiles. Christ didn’t do much with the Gentiles but here it’s seen in living colour. His great compassion for people.
Healing is meant for God’s children, but is given even to those who are outside the fold.
The invitation is to take our emotional and physical wounds to Christ, who is able to heal.
