Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:30-31 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we find the truth of He healed them all. Jesus was and still is the great magnet that draws sinners unto Himself. There is a great multitude that came of dumb, maimed, lamed and blind. Each one of these have a spiritual implication. When they saw His wonder working in their lives they glorified the God of Israel. The dumb could hear, the maimed were made whole, the lame could walk, and the blind could see. What an instrument of increasing the faith of those watching. Oh, how our faith is increased when we see sinners saved. John said Jesus will not cast out any that come unto Him.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:29 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we are given a thought on sitting while preaching. Our Lord loved the seaside and mountaintops. Whenever He had a word from God He had to but choose the place and the congregation would gather. He didn't have to go into what we call preacher style, no He just sat and shared. There were no church bells, twitter or Facebook announcements, but God would put it in the hearts of people to come. They would climb the mountain or gather along the seashore. Let us be assured today when we study to show ourselves approved of God and He gives a word we will not lack for someone to share the Word with.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:27 and the theme of Jesus the King. In our study for today we find some help from the statement "truth Lord". He calls this lady who desired bread of a dog and tells her we cannot share the children's bread with dogs. The word used for dog is a little house hold pet name for dog.She humbly identifies with this term. She realizes that this household pet is one loved and petted by the children of the house she tells the Lord she will be satisfied just to collect the chrumbs the children dropped on the floor. Oh what a position of humility this lady takes. It moves the heart of our Lord towards her.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:28 and the theme of Jesus the king. when this dear lady cried truth Lord to his title of dog for her He saw in her great faith. It only takes little faith to go to heaven but great faith brings heaven to you. His response to her great faith was you can have it your way. When great faith is operating in our life you want His will to be your will and that's when you can have it your way. If we practice great faith let it be in the area of our children and grandchildren that they may be made spiritually whole. Let this be our prayer Lord I believe help my unbelief and give me great faith.
Let us muse again today from Matthew 15:24 and the them of Jesus the king. When our Lord ends His silence to this lady He speaks directly to His disciples when He said I have come to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. He is stating a fact that He is come to minister only to the lost sheep, lost sheep only. She knows that she is not one of His sheep, most would have left with nothing, but not her. She doubles down on her pleading her case, she refuses to be denied. Let us learn some lessons about perseverance in prayer from this great story.
