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.” (Mark 7:37 NKJV) I really can’t imagine our Lord doing anything bad, or even half heartedly! For all we have to do is look around, and we can see the beauty of His Works! Just look at your own life and you will see all the things that He has done well in you! Today we join Pastor David Crespo in Mark’s Gospel chapter seven as we continue our Sunday Sermon Series titled, “Messiah on the Move” we read through verses thirty-one through thirty-seven and then look at three things that The Lord has done well… Let’s listen in!
Mark 7:31-37 New King James Version
Jesus Heals a Deaf-Mute
31 Again, departing from the region of Tyre and Sidon, He came through the midst of the region of Decapolis to the Sea of Galilee. 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 [a]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.”
