Summary: Jesus is our Model to follow
Do good for men-Mt12:9-14
Man is more than a sheep
Man is higher than Sasthram-that is traditional events
Sasthram is for man only ;not man for sasthram.
Jesus came for doing good for mankind.
Today:Two kinds of people:1.One who receiving good and now standing against.
2.One who says:You people are doing good for your benefit
This world is mocking the good what we are doing
Jesus's time:Many doubted
Jn 1:46 Nathanel doubted
your birthplace is that
so your birth is also that only
so no goods come from there
His goods misunderstood and they plot to kill.
Anyway.Jesus did marvelous good-Acts10:38
He went anywhere with doing good
What kind of good He did?.
1.Gives Rest to tired-Mt11:28
Law gave lot of loads
Sin gave lot of loads.Curse gave lot of loads
Load brought weary and tiredness
Jesus gave rest. How it came?
Whoever comes to Jesus only gets rest
He is the Only One to remove the burden and take the loads.
2.Save the sinners-1Tim1:15
No religions gives any assurance to the sinners
Hinduism proclaims that sinner will be punished and righteous will be saved
Even Law also punishes;but Grace -Jesus only saves
Jn3:16,17-Christ came not to punish
1Peter5:8-Devil try to catch,But Jesus to save.
Saving Act is God's good-He gave His life to save
He never likes people to perish
whether they are low cast or high caste,He is the only can save
3.Show the light to people who are in darkness.-Jn9:4,5
Darkness is growing and people are suffering
Jesus -gives light to you; that is showing
-make yourself lights; like Him
Jesus brings light,that is Eternal light
it shows the life path.
Many illegal traditions are to be eradicated
4.Giving Life to dead-Mt20:28
Moses-Law leads to death and Curse also leads to death.
But Jesus leads to life
what kind of life?. Eternal Life
He came as life and came to give life.
He died for us and shed His blood for us to get life
5.To Heal- Healing is the best goodness
Two kinds: a.healing in body; b. healing in soul
Lk4:18- heal the contrite heart
5:17-power of God to heal the sick
9:1,6- gives authority to heal, disciple did it
Acts4:30-God's hand to heal
1Cor12:9,28- gifts of healing in the church
sickness and weakness are fruits of curse
healing and recovering are the fruits of blessing.
6. Jesus touched lepers; supper with lowcast people
loves sinners and hate the sin.
gives good food and teach healthy way
we people to do good,whether they like or not
