What About a Fresh Start?

This weekend at Eastbrook Church, I concluded our “Resolved” series with a message entitled “What About a Fresh Start?”

While I had a bit of a sore throat, I rasped out the message, which was rooted in Matthew 9:1-8.

You can listen to my message online at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also subscribe to the Eastbrook podcast here or follow Eastbrook Church on Twitter. I’ve included my outline for the message below:

Jesus Has Authority (Matthew 9:6; 7:28-29)

  • “But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority…” (Matthew 9:6a)
  • “He taught as One who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law” (Matthew 7:29)

Jesus Forgives (Matthew 9:1-2)

  • Coming for one thing and receiving another
  • Sin is a big deal
  • The power of forgiveness

An Aside on Being Religious (Matthew 9:3-6)

  • Knowledge without understanding
  • Judging without self-knowledge

Jesus Heals (Matthew 9:6-8)

  • Healing and self-knowledge
  • Healing and recovery
  • Healing and the next day
