Matthew 8:1-15 – HELPED BY THE SAVIOR
There are many people who have been helped by the Lord Jesus (Give your own examples.)
Three such helped people are described in our text.
THE LEPER WAS HELPED BY THE SAVIOR WHO WAS WILLING – Vss. 1-4
We would come to Him more for help if we only realized how willing to help Jesus is!
THE CENTURION WAS HELPED BY THE SAVIOR WHO MARVELLED – Vss. 5-13
The centurion expressed great faith. He realized that Jesus didn’t even have to come to his house.
All Jesus had to do was “speak the word” and his servant would receive healing.
Jesus marveled at this man’s faith.
Our faith in this faithless generation should be such that Jesus would be equally pleased with our faith.
PETER’S MOTHER IN-LAW WAS HELPED BY A SAVIOR WHO WAS SERVED – Vss. 4-15
Jesus healed the lady. She served Him. You and I have been healed if we are saved. We should show our appreciation by serving Him in return. Galatians 2:20, 1 John 4:19
