  • Go Thy Way: He Waited For A Convenient Season

    Contributed on Mar 31, 2020

    In this last message for this "Go thy way" series, Felix a Roman governor, talked with Paul about the Christian faith several times. He listened but told Paul "go thy way and I'll talk to you about this when I have the time". Sadly, he never found the time.

    Background: Paul has been arrested in Jerusalem, then taken to the Roman barracks (castle, KJV: Acts 21:34, 37, e.g.). Later Paul was sent to the seat of Roman government in Caesarea. He had been tried and accused of charges, serious at the time, but was declared neither guilty nor innocent. Paul more

  • Go Thy Way: The Commission For Ananias

    Contributed on Mar 29, 2020

    You know someone is coming, perhaps to arrest you for being a Christian. Then you hear the Lord telling you to minister to that person. This happened to Ananias of Damascus when he ministered to Saul of Tarsus.

    Introduction: suppose you heard someone was coming to arrest you, or even worse. You also know this person is a recognized hater of your faith, and wants little if anything to do with you. With that in mind, now suppose a word comes from God Himself that this known persecutor has become a more

  • Go Thy Way: When Jesus Healed A Nobleman’s Son

    Contributed on Mar 26, 2020

    Jesus had come from Judea and had already passed through Samaria, and now was in Cana of Galilee, where He had performed His first miracle, as recorded in John 2. Now He’s again in Cana and He will encounter someone there who has a need that only Jesus Himself can fulfill.

    Introduction During our Lord’s ministry on this earth, He must have had people asking Him many times if He would heal someone. Gracious as He was, He never turned anyone away. Whether the person was very poor, like the woman who had spent everything she had but never was cured, or a foreigner like more

  • Go Thy Way: When Jesus Healed A Samaritan Leper

    Contributed on Mar 20, 2020

    One of the last miracles our Lord performed was healing a group of ten lepers. Jesus healed all of them, but how many were grateful for this gift?

    Background: This isn’t the first time Jesus healed a leper but it was probably the last. When this event took place, Jesus is heading towards Jerusalem, passing through Samaria and Galilee. The events in this passage happened just days before He was crucified and had risen from the dead. more

    based on 1 rating

    The blind have never had it easy in this world. This story features Jesus healing a man from blindness, and also telling him, "go thy way". This is the last time the phrase "go thy way" appears in Mark's gospel.

    Background: Jesus, in this passage, is only a few days away from Calvary, where He would die for the sins of the world. He had already explained this to the disciples, a short time before this (Mark 10: 43-44). Now the group is heading through Jericho, where He performed a miracle for a man who was more
