Title: The Savior Who Cannot Be Hidden

 Text: Mark 7:24-37

  1. Jesus Cares For All Nations And So Should We (7:24-30).
    • Matthew 28:19-20: 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a]the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
    • Genesis 12:1-3: Now the Lord said[a]to Abram, “Go from your country[b] and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
    • Psalm 67:1-7: May Godbe gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah that your way may be known on earth,
          your saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Selah Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!
    • Tim Keller: “There are cowards, there are regular people, there are heroes, and then there are parents. Parents are not really on the spectrum from cowardice to courage, because if your child is in jeopardy, you simply do what it takes to save her .... You don’t think twice; you do what it takes.
    • Matthew 15:28: “Then Jesus answered her, O Woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.”

 

  1. Jesus Cares For The Hurting And So Should We (7:31-37).
    • Sinclair Ferguson: “The man could not hear Jesus and he was also incapable of verbal communication. So Jesus spoke to him in the language he could understand—sign-language--. The fingers placed in his ears and then removed meant, “I am going to remove the blockage in your hearing.” The spitting and the touching of the man’s tongue meant, “I am going to remove the blockage in your mouth.” The glance up to heaven meant, “It is God alone who is able to do this for you.” Jesus wanted the man to understand that it was not magic but God’s grace that healed him.
