2023-04-23 – What if Little Is the Sweet Spot for Faith? – Matt Walker, Pastor Ken

Preacher: ,
Passage: Jeremiah 23:18; Luke 17:5; Luke 4:16-30; Isaiah 61:1-2; 1 Kings 17:1-16; Isaiah 22:12,13; 2 Kings 5:1-14; Hebrews 3:1-; Psalm 95:7; John 3:2; Isaiah 7:14; John 12:23-25; 1 Kings 18:41-45

In Luke 4, Jesus visits his hometown and declares a prophecy from Isaiah fulfilled, but the people are nonplussed because they want miracles.  So Jesus reminds them of how Elijah visited a widow from Sidon during a drought and how Elisha healed Naaman the Syrian — the obvious take being it’s not familiarity that decides miracles.  But since Jesus connects the three Old Testament passages together, could there be other lessons to learn from them — not the least of which is maybe it’s what’s little that can have the greatest impact? – Matt Walker
