30 Days of Quiet Time - April 8, 2006

Matthew 8:1-9:8

This passage tells us that Jesus rules over:
• disease
• death
• physical ailments
• nature
• demons
• animals

One other thing that stood out to me in this passage is how Jesus often goes off topic. Like in the story of the man who came to him because his servant was suffering. He asked Jesus for healing and Jesus does heal the servant. But before He does, He begins talking about faith, feasts, the Kingdom of Heaven, darkness and wailing and knashing of teeth. I wonder if anyone really understood what He was talking about. It seems off-topic to the conversation at hand. Of course, we know that it wasn't, but I wonder what the crowd was thinking as He veered away from the situation at hand.
