The faith of a Gentile (7:1-10)

A Gentile centurion appealed to Jesus for help.  He was an outsider, shut out from Israel, God’s Old Testament people, and he knew it.  Yet he was one of God’s elect, destined to be brought into God’s true people.  God gave to him a faith that overcame all obstacles and won mercy from Israel’s Messiah.


In the hearing of the people (7:1)

The Jews to whom Jesus preached were confident that as the people of God, their status was secure.  They were sure that their external privileges guaranteed their eternal salvation.  How many people today – including many in evangelical churches – make the same mistake.


Jacob and the stairway to heaven (Gen 28:10-22)

Jacob wanted God’s blessing but had no relationship with God – until God met with him.  Then at last he learned that God is present and personal.


Hearing and doing the words of Jesus (6:43-49)

Jesus had many people who called themselves his disciples.  All of them listened to his words and passed them on to others.  But how many put them into practice?


The speck and the log (6:41-42)

Christians can be very good at detecting the little sins in one another.  When should we rebuke our fellow believers and when should we remain silent?  And how good are we at recognising the greater sins in ourselves?  And what are we to do about them?
