Jesus’ authority is on full display in this week’s sermon text. Jesus calls Matthew, the Publican, he heals a paralytic, he heals a demoniac and raises a woman from the dead. The heart of this passage is that Jesus has incredible authority and with that authority he calls for mercy! Worshipping Jesus, then, should give us incredible freedom! Our merciful savior overcomes the world! Spend some time with week dwelling on the mercy of Jesus towards us.
