Jesus’ Power Over Death

Text: Luke 7:11-17
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: September 21, 2014

This week we come to a climactic miracle as Jesus compassionately raises the dead only begotten son of a widow.  Like the healing of the centurion’s servant, this miracle is a reminder of the great works of the prophets of old (Elisha and Elijah – see 1 Kings 17:17-24,  2 Kings 4:18-37).  This sign should have made it abundantly clear to the Jews that Jesus is the Messiah.  It also is a picture of His work of giving life to those who are spiritually dead.  Many of us have (spiritually) dead children.  Only Jesus can give them life.


Astonishing Faith

Text: Luke 7:1-10
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF
Date: September 14, 2014

What does it take to amaze you?  Caroline and I just got back from a week exploring National Parks in the Dakotas.  We saw some amazing sights – Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, some of the longest caves in the world, etc.  Jesus did many things which caused others to marvel but what would it take to cause Jesus to marvel?  On two occasions Jesus is said to have been amazed.  Once He marveled at the unbelief of the Jews in his hometown (Mark 6:6).  The other time is in our passage this week (Luke 7:9) in which he marvels at the faith of a Gentile centurion.  Another amazing thing about this man is that while others thought that he was worthy of Jesus’ help, he viewed himself as unworthy to even draw near to our Lord.

Do you see yourself as a good person who deserves God’s blessing upon your life and your family?  Do you have faith like that of the centurion?
