THE NEED TO BE REMINDED OF WHO JESUS IS

March 3

In this chapter Jesus shows that He not only loves the Jews, but all people. He casts out a demon out of a Gentile girl and here He gives ears the ability to hear and a mouth to speak.  All of these things are what was predicted in the Old Testament about what the Messiah (Jesus) would do when He came. This healing of the deaf man with a speech impediment is a picture of Jesus opening up the spiritual ears of the disciples and ultimately us.  He had done so many miracles yet they still had not understood, so He had to repeat the lessons He had been trying to teach them.  Aren’t we like the disciples, we constantly have to be reminded who Jesus is, what He has done for us, and how much He loves us, yet we still don’t get it like we ought to?  Let us remind ourselves daily by reading, praying, and studying the word how much He cares for us who are His children by faith.

Mark 7:32 Then they brought to Him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech, and they begged Him to put His hand on him. 33 And He took him aside from the multitude, and put His fingers in his ears, and He spat and touched his tongue. 34 Then, looking up to heaven, He sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” 35 Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was loosed, and he spoke plainly. 36 Then He commanded them that they should tell no one; but the more He commanded them, the more widely they proclaimed it. 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes both the deaf to hear and the mute to speak.”
