The Ministry of Jesus

Jesus came to bring
++Instruction
++Inspiration
++Impartation
Jesus
++Taught the word of God
++Tore down the strongholds
Strongholds of
++Self
++Satan
++Sickness
Jesus had a reputation
++Demons knew him
++Natural elements obeyed him
++Sickness and diseases were subject to him
Luke 17:11–19 KJV 1900
11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

Jesus’s ministry was marked by interruptions.

Wouldn’t it be great if God…?
++Told us his full plan
++Map out what he wants
++Make it easy for us to follow
John 14:8 KJV 1900
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

Living for God requires faith.

Hebrews 11:1 KJV 1900
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Faith is
++Substance
++Evidence
Hebrews 11:6 KJV 1900
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Luke 17:11–13 KJV 1900
11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
The Ten Men
++Came to meet Jesus
++Stood far off
Untouchable
Unclean
The Ten Men
Came to meet Jesus
Stood far off
++They called out to Jesus
++They called him Master
++They cried for Mercy

Jesus response to their cry for mercy

Luke 17:14 KJV 1900
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
Jesus saw them
++Beyond the mask
++In spite of their appearance
Jesus tells them to go to the priests
There condition was not permanent

It Came to Pass

As they went they were cleansed
They needed more
++Than a cleaning
++Than a change in condition

We have been learning a lot about esteem.

To esteem is to
++respect
++admiration
To Honor
++high respect
++great esteem.
Philippians 2:3 KJV 1900
3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Romans 12:10 KJV 1900
10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Why is it so difficult to honor?

In order to lift another up
++We must change our Position
++We must change our attitude
++We must change how we see us
Luke 17:15–16 KJV 1900
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

God is always at work.

John 5:17 KJV 1900
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
This one man
++Recognized the work of God
++Responded to what God had done
Luke 17:17 KJV 1900
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

90% of those lives never responded

Grace was exended
Healing made available
Satisfied with their miracle
This one man
Recognized the work of God
Responded to what God had done
++Returned and gave thanks
Luke 17:19 KJV 1900
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
The power of the return
++Relationship with God
++Release from the past
++Restoration of a full life
