January 2, 2011 | Matthew 8:1-17 - "Be Cleansed": The Great Healer & His Great Gospel

This Sunday we began a new series returning to the Gospel of Matthew.  Between now and Easter we will be walking verse-by-verse through Matthew's Gospel through about chapter 12.  I really enjoyed our first text from Matthew 8:1-17.  The reason Jesus healed so many was to make the connection between His power and authority to heal the body and as a result of His death and resurrection, to heal the soul and to be reconciliation and forgiveness to everyone who believes (like the Centurion).


Happy New Year to all!
