Matthew 9:35-38 and 10:1-8, March 08, 2020 The Harvest, The Twelve and Us  9:35-36 Compassion of Jesus. The statement they were like sheep without a shepherd is taken from Numbers 27:15-17 where Moses is asking God to provide someone to lead them so the Lord’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd. Jesus saw the need, felt compassion and was moved by His compassion and acted on it as shown in the next two verses. All too often…

Matthew 9:27-38

*Apologies for not capturing the audio of Angi’s sharing her missionary trip to Costa Rica and Honduras.  Many accepted Christ – and many recommitted.  Angi listened to God’s call to go out into the field…..

Matthew 9:1-8

Matthew 9:1-8, February 09, 2020 Hearing and Seeing  Review:  8:28-34 Demons and Pigs. When the boat arrived on the Eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee something truly odd happened, two demon possessed men came out to meet Jesus and only Jesus. They had no interaction with the others, only Jesus. A number of things stand out about their meeting with Jesus. 1) They knew who He was, 2) they feared Him, 3) they knew a time would come for…
