Lord Will You Make Me Clean?
Matthew 8:1-4 NIV
1When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; 2 and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.” 3 He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do choose. Be made clean!” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
Oftentimes in life people lean and depend on you more than they depend on God. They expect you to fix all there problems, to give them an encouraging word, to loan them money or just have a shoulder to lay their head on. It is

I can image that he was lonely, looked down upon, and accused of committing the worst sin that anyone could commit. We learn from the Old Testament in the book of Leviticus 13 that anyone with leprosy was to be put outside the camp and declared unclean. His only hope was Jesus. The text does not point out how long he had leprosy. It does not point out any family member or anybody trying to help this man, because of the disease being deadly. He was not allowed close to anyone and could not be touched. He believed that Jesus was the one to fix his problem. In believing he ran to Jesus by faith. His belief in Jesus demonstrated faith in Christ. He had faith that Jesus could save him from death. This is the same faith that the world need to be saved from their sin. This is the same faith each one of us here today need to be saved from our sins. This man was confessing that Jesus could make him whole. This man was believing in his heart that Jesus could fix his situation. What about you today do you believe Jesus can fix your situation? Do you believe Jesus can save your soul? The Bible says confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead and you will be saved. For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved (Rom.10:9-10). This man was believing Jesus was …show more content…
There was a little boy demon possessed and they brought him to Jesus. Jesus asked how long has he been like this? And his father said, “From childhood. It has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you are able to do anything, have pity on us and help us.” Jesus said to him, “If you are able!—All things can be done for the one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out, “I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:20-24). God provided deliverance for the man’s son because he believed. We in our world must believe on the God who can do the impossible. He will provide salvation to anyone who puts their trust in the Savior of the world Jesus the

    In all essence, Paul had a sincere heart for God’s people after becoming truly converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. The third homiletical idea comes from the Scripture reading of John 13:31-35 in the New Testament. The homiletical idea is to recognize the glory of God through Jesus Christ’s love for the world, (Jn. 3:16, EVS). Jesus Christ death and betrayal was for God’ glorification, because it was God’s will and Jesus Christ acted accordingly in the will of obedience.…

    Jesus shows us that Christian’s are people who believe in the word of God, who trust in the Word of God and who spread the Word of God throughout the world to gain more followers for this historical Religion. To be a Christian there aren’t rules or guidelines but from our knowledge of Jesus it just means that having a special relationship with God and committing ourselves to following him and following his teaching and spreading the word of God. Christian’s believed that Jesus was the Messiah and that when he died and eventually resurrected he would allow them to be reconciled with God and that they would be offered their Salvation and they were also promised with Eternal Life. This shows us that Jesus was willing to suffer on the cross so that he could show his full promise to the will of the Eternal Father. Christian’s also believe that Jesus was human and divine at the same time.…

    I believe Jesus has to be both because he needs to be the same as you and I to serve and help mankind. Jesus being the son of God always gave him the power to not be tempted by sin and pure. Being the son of God, he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps for the better of humanity. Jesus even refers to God as Father. (McGrath 63) However, he has to be human so he can have humanity…

    The scripture states that God created man in His own image and he created us so that we can serve and glorify Him in all that we do. The Bible also teaches us that God loves and cares for us so much that he sent his only son to save us from sin and give us grace.

    Paul teaches a lesson about the humanity of Jesus Christ. He explains that in order for Jesus to rescue and restore mankind back into an acceptable relationship with God again Jesus needs to live a perfect human life. This means that Jesus needs to obey the expectations of his father and the almighty Lord our God. Philippians chapter two relates to my life because as a Christian I know that Jesus is the only one who can live a perfect life. As a human, I know I am a sinner.…

    It was made clear by Jesus at the beginning of His ministry who should receive worship and it was only God. Peter’s statement about worshiping only a man combined with other scriptures contributes to our understanding of the deity of Christ. Lastly throughout the book of Acts there are witnesses of the deity of Christ Jesus. The Apostle Peter along with Philip believed that Jesus ' resurrection was in fulfillment of Messianic prophecy; The Apostle Peter refers to Jesus as the Holy and Righteous One and as the Prince of Life. Another witness in the book of Acts is the Apostle Paul he preached Jesus as the Son of God, as well as proclaiming the resurrection of Jesus as validation of His divinity.…
