Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 10/15/2017

Sunday’s message from the Ten Miracles of Jesus series was called Carrying Our Diseases, taken from Matthew 8:14-17. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. Jesus heals Peter’s mother-in-law (14-15)
   A. Jesus cares for the individual and the outsider
   B. Jesus saves so that we may serve (Ephesians 2:8-10)

II. Jesus heals many (16)
   A. Jesus is unlimited in his healing power
   B. Difference between illness and evil spirits

III. Jesus heals in fulfillment of prophecy (17)
   A. Healing is a sign of God’s kingdom
      – Matthew 4:23
   B. Jesus’ healing ministry was prophesied by Isaiah
      – Isaiah 53:4-6
   C. Difference between sickness and sin, between healing and forgiveness
      1) Jesus bore our sins on the cross, not our sicknesses
         – 1 Peter 2:24
      2) Healing is a result or benefit of the atonement
         – Psalm 103:2-3
      3) Forgiveness is guaranteed now; healing is guaranteed later
         – 1 John 1:9; Romans 8:18-24; 2 Corinthians 12:9; Revelation 21:4
   D. Two mistakes to avoid – 1) Jesus never heals; 2) Jesus always heals
