SAA Notes

Jesus showed His authority over demons, sickness, disability and death. May we help others to see some little glimpse of His Glory!

SJA Notes

Here is the Good Shepherd!

We see Jesus healing the sick, the really badly sick people – Some that have suffered depths of pain for years, and some whose bodies have even succumbed to death.

But as much as He was a healer of mortal temporal afflictions, He is the Shepherd that GUIDES His sheep.

“And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.”

He was the Good Shepherd, the Great Preacher, pointing us to His kingdom.

Hallelujah, What a Saviour!

* Gracious Lord,

Thank You that even though we suffer mortal afflictions, pain and sorrow, loss and loneliness – Thank You for Jesus who finds the lost sheep and brings them home, guiding them.

Thank You that He has found us, called us, and that He guides us on this road.

Thank You Lord, we praise Your Name.

Amen.
