Pastor Bramwell preached this sermon on Matthew 9:20-22 on November 14, 2021 for the Twenty-fourth Sunday after Trinity.
And behold, a woman who had suffered from a discharge of blood for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.
What is today’s focus?
When we acknowledge that we’re sinners, we’re not simply recognizing God says we can and cannot do, but that sin has us living at odds with what?
How does Exodus 33:18-20 shape the understanding of His people when we desire to see God’s glory in our lives?
What does John 1 tell us about Jesus’ incarnation?
Why did God establish His Law?
The bleeding woman is a picture of faithfulness. Though God’s Law burdens her for twelve years, she doesn’t reject God. Instead, she clings to God’s Word and her faith makes her well. Is this how you are used to treating God’s Word when it imposes a burden on your life?
The woman’s faith made her well. Does your faith in Christ make you well? (The answer is a resounding YES!)
