Account for Jesus’ fame (See 4:24-25)? What does the centurion understand about Jesus’ authority?
In these verses we are given examples of the divine power and the full command that Jesus has in healing disease. Crowds began to flock to be in the presence of Jesus. Today, the fame of Jesus continues. There are miracles still taking place all over the world today as the Holy Spirit empowers God’s people.
Have you made a phone call recently to get help with a question you have on a bill or a product you just bought? Most companies have gone to a menu procedure like dial one for billing questions, two for technical support, etc. When I make a call to a company for help, I want to talk to a real person; not some automated system. My problem is always unique and not listed as a part of the numbers to call. With Jesus, we have a personal friend to work out our unique problem.
List any videos you are reminded of as you read this passage. Here is a link to one for this reading. I hope you receive inspiration from this video. With Jesus, we have a personal friend to help with any difficulty in life: All creatures of our God and King – David Crowder.
Today, I’m praying for crowds to flock to churches to hear about the miracles still taking place all over the world today as the Holy Spirit empowers God’s people. I’m praying for boldness in being a part of or in having the ability to point out these current day wonders to others.
