  Study Tools

DEAF AND DUMB

MARK 7:31-37

INTRO: JESUS HEALS A MAN WHO CANNOT SPEAK OR HEAR.

1: DECAPOLIS

A) GENTILE AREA EAST OF GALILEE

B) JESUS WAS OUT AND ABOUT

C) THE CROWD URGES JESUS TO HEAL THE MAN

POINT: A LARGE CROWD, A MAN WITH AMAZING GIFTS AND ABILITIES TO WORK WONDERS AND MIRACLES. THEY WANTED TO SEE ONE. NOT SO MUCH LISTEN TO WHAT HE HAD TO SAY OR URGE HIM TO SPEAK WORDS OF WISDOM. THEY WANTED TO SEE HIM HEAL SOMEONE.

2: DECAPOLIS MODERN DAY AMERICA

A) A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE

B) WE LIKE TO EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF CHRIST

C) WE FLOCK TO SITES OF REPORTED MIRACLES

D) IF JESUS WERE TO COME AND WALK AMONGST US WE WOULD ACT VERY SIMILAR TO THOSE AT DECAPOLIS.

POINT: THE PEOPLE WERE GOOD AND BAD IN WHAT THEY WERE DOING. ON ONE SIDE THEY URGED JESUS TO HEAL A LESS FORTUNATE MAN IN THEIR TOWN, THE OTHER SIDE IS THEY WERE MORE CONCERNED WITH THE MIRACLE THAN THE ONE WHO PERFORMED IT.

BODY: HE TOOK HIM ASIDE

1: JESUS WANTS OUR ATTENTION

A) THE LORD WANTS OUR EYES UPON HIM

B) JESUS HAS TO TAKE THE MAN ASIDE

C) HE IS GETTING HIM TO WHERE HE CAN HAVE A CLOSE PERSONAL TIME WITH HIM

POINT: EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO HAVE TIME WHERE THEY JUST SPEAK TO JESUS WHERE THEY JUST FOCUS ON HIM. A LITTLE FACE TIME WITH THE SAVIOR OF ALL MANKIND.

2: MANKIND/ THE MAN

A) THE MAN COULD NOT HEAR

B) BUT HE COULD SPEAK SOME

C) THE BIBLE SAYS HE HAD A SPEECH IMPEDIMENT

D) HE COULDN’T TALK GOOD

POINT: IF YOU CAN’T HEAR IT AFFECTS YOUR SPEECH, IF YOU NEVER COULD HEAR AT ALL THEN YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SPEAK CLEARLY. SPIRTUALLY IF YOU NEVER LISTEN TO GOD IF YOU NEVER HEAR HIM YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO HIM CLEARLY. YOU HAVE TO HEAR THE CALL OF JESUS TO KNOW OR BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO GOD. SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

3: HE SPIT ON THE TONGUE

A) WHY?

B) THE TOUCH AND SPITTLE REPRESENT JESUS’S OWN LIFE

C) IT WAS A WAY OF REASSURING THE MAN

D) THE MAN HAD TO BELIEVE AND HAVE FAITH FOR HIS HEALING TO COME

POINT: WE HAVE TO HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE THAT NOT JUST THE SPIT OF JESUS BUT HIS SHED BLOOD UPON THE CROSS CLEANSES US AND SETS US FREE FROM OUR SIN DEBT WHEN WE TRUST IN HIM.

CLOSING: HE SIGHED

1: LOOKING UP TO HEAVEN

A) THE CROWD, THE MAN,

B) THINK OF THE ATMOSPHERE

C) HE KNEW THE THOUGHTS AND INTENTIONS OF EVERY PERSON

D) IT IS ALMOST AS IF HE HAD A MOMENT WHERE HE MIGHT OF THOUGHT THEY ARE MORE INTERSETED IN WHAT I CAN DO THAN IN WHO I AM!!

2: HE SIGHED

A) HOW MANY MIRACLES DO YOU THINK HE PERFORMED

B) JOHN 21:25 READ

C) AFTER SO MANY ENCOUNTERS PEOPLE STILL NEEDED EVIDENCE

D) THEY HAD TO SEE TO BELIEVE

POINT: THE WORLD TODAY IS NO DIFFERENT PEOPLE WANT TO LOVE CHRIST BUT THEY CONCERN THEMSELVES MORE WITH WAT HE CAN DO FOR THEM IN THE HARD TIMES THAN WHAT HE HAS ALREADY DONE UPON THE CROSS OF CALVARY.

CONCLUSION: THE WORLD, HUMANITY, THE CHURCH IS OR HAS BECOME DEAF TO GOD’S WORD AND THE EFFECT OF THAT IS THE CHRISTIAN OF TODAY CANNOT SPEAK THE WORD OF GOD TO THE LOST AS EFFECTIVE AND SOULS ARE NOT BEING WON TO CHRIST. IT IS TIME TO FOCUS ON WHO JESUS IS AND WHAT HE HAS ALREADY DONE INSTEAD OF WHAT CAN HE DO FOR ME TODAY TO REASSURE ME OF MY FAITH.
