In Christ is Great Healing

The Sermon ………………………………………….……… Matthew 9 : 1 – 8

So He got into a boat, crossed over and came to His own city. And behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. And Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer, your sins are forgiven you.” And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, “This Man blasphemes!” But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk?’ But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins” – then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, wake up your bed, and go to your house.” And he arose and departed to his house. Now when the multitudes saw it,they marveled and glorified God, Who has given such power to men.
