August 25th – Looking and seeing

Tom Cox 26th August 2019

Tom Cox preaches on Luke 13:10-17, Jesus heals the woman on the Sabbath. We may be surprised to see Jesus, at times like this, not the meek and compassionate person we usually assume him to be, but fiercely angry and condemning of the hypocritical pharisees who claim he is breaking the law by healing on the Sabbath. We need to see Jesus in all aspects of his character, not just those that suit us. Jesus knows all about us, and sees through our every motive and thought just as he did with the Pharisees and others in his audience. We also need to try and see people as Jesus sees them, to have the same concern, love and compassion for those we see around us in our daily lives.
