The People Came To Jesus

The People Came To Jesus

Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached him (Jesus)” (Matt. 8:2).

“… a Roman officer came and pleaded with him (Jesus)…” (Matt. 8:5).

That evening many demon-possessed people were brought to Jesus” (Matt. 8:16).

Some people brought to him a paralyzed man on a mat” (Matt. 9:2).


Approached. Came. Brought.

In each of these instances, the people drew near to Jesus. They came seeking healing from their physical ailment, and in each instance, Jesus healed them. They realized Jesus was the miracle maker. They needed a healer, someone to do for them what they couldn’t do for themselves.

It makes me wonder, do I take my handicaps to Jesus? Do I handle issues on my own when healing is in the waiting?

If I would take my wounded soul, my crushed spirit, my aching heart to Jesus, would He just leave me hanging in brokenness?

So many times I try to resolve my own problems before I go to Him. I exhaust plans A, B and C, and then when all else fails, I remember I have a God who can save me. Why does it take so long for us to remember Him, to remember He wants us to bring our brokenness before Him, to remember we have a God who is on our side?

Jesus longs for us to come to Him. All we must do is ask. “How much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask.” Matt. 7:11


A-Aware- I need to be aware that I have a problem.

S-Savior- I have a Savior who can handle my problem.

K-Kneel- I need to kneel before the throne and ask God who can answer!


Be healed! And instantly the leprosy disappeared” (Matt. 8:3).

‘Go back home. Because you believed, it has happened.’ And the young servant was healed that same hour” (Matt.8:13).

And the man jumped up and went home!” (Matt 9:7).

What if “healing” is waiting for you? Be brave. Ask today! See how God bends down low to answer your earnest plea.
