Day 9: Redeemer and Deliverer

Read Matthew 9

This chapter tells us how the Lord Jesus is manifesting the character and power of God in consonance with Psalm 103, Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases.

He presents Himself to Israel and indeed the world as the true Redeemer and Deliverer; People see the demonstration of His glory. They magnify God who had given such power to a man. Jesus accepts this place. He was man: the multitude saw Him to be man, and acknowledged the power of God, but did not know how to combine the two ideas in His Person.

Matthew, the publican – a sinner, is called; for God looks at the heart, and grace calls the elect vessels.

The concluding summary of miracles (9:35) also contains another declaration of Christ’s authority: we must ask the Lord to send out workers to demonstrate Jesus’ authority over these needs (9:36-37).

The Lord is filled with compassion for mankind to deliver him from satan’s bondage. The Lord Jesus is seeking those who will express God’s compassion and take the Good News to perishing souls.

Outline:

  • Matthew the Tax Collector  (9:9-12)
  • Jesus Is Questioned About Fasting (9:14-17)
  • Healing the sick (9:18-34)
  • The Compassion of Jesus (9:35-35)
  • More Laborers for the Harvest (9:35-38)

Prayer:

  1. Pray that you will be gracious to other even as God is gracious to you.
  2. Pray for the grace and strength for prayer and fasting this year.
  3. Pray for wisdom and grace for witnessing and that you will souls for Christ this year.

Meditation:

God did not direct His call to Isaiah- Isaiah overheard God saying, “. . . who will go for Us?” The call of God is not just for a select few but for everyone. Whether I hear God’s call or not depends on the condition of my ears, and exactly what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude- Oswald Chambers
