He Makes the Deaf Hear and the Mute Speak

He Makes the Deaf Hear and the Mute Speak

August 30th, 2020 Divine Service

Christ’s work on earth was, simply put, amazing. Yes, he miraculously healed physical afflictions but more so, he brought about spiritual miracles. He showed first-hand how God’s love is for everyone – Jew and Gentiles. He fulfilled a 700 year old prophecy (today’s OT reading, Isaiah 29:18).

And as Mark wrote in chapter 7, “He did all things well”. He lived well, died well and loves us well. Christ did all things well for us. For our salvation. There is no greater love.

Almighty God, heavenly Father, give us grace to trust You during this time of illness and distress. In mercy put an end to the pandemic that afflicts us.
