“We’ve Never Seen Anything Like This!”
But so you may know that the Son of Man has authority to pardon sins on earth…. He tells the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home!” At once the man got up, took his mat, and walked before them all. They were all astonished and glorified God, saying, “We’ve never seen anything like this!” Mark 2:10-12
When your mind turns to Messiah Yeshua, rejoice first on who He is – His person. His divine and human natures, for He is both God and man. Then think of what He has done – His work. Visualize as best you can the scene when He created the heavens and earth. See him entering the world as an infant, becoming a miracle worker, wielding His power over wind and weather, over sickness and sorrow, over death and demons. Remember how He was sacrificed for us, rose again, ascended to heaven, and will soon return in glory. Think too, of what He does for us each day – the blessings. He pours into our lives, the way He is interceding right now for us as our Great High Priest.
Sometimes we’re too busy to consider Him as we ought. Take time today to ponder anew the person and work of Messiah Yeshua. If we really think on these things, maybe we’ll react like the people in Mark 2 who said, “We’ve never seen anything like this!”
