Jesus; my teacher, preacher and healer

Rev Enoch Thompson | JANUARY 19, 2023 | MATTHEW 4:23-25

TEXT: Matthew 4:23-25 (NIV)

Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.


Jesus Christ was a popular person in the context of first-century Israel. Our text shows that His fame spread throughout the nation. He was noted as a teacher, a preacher and a healer, and these factors attracted multitudes to Him.

Do you feel attracted to Jesus Christ? What is it that attracts you to Him? It appears to me that the miracles of the Lord, which here in our text covers the healing of diseases He accomplished among his countrymen are the major attraction to Him.

The human condition worldwide has not been cured of the challenges of disease, in spite of the advances in the field of medical science. Demonic oppression is a reality in the modern era, just as it was in the ancient world. In more economically advanced and politically better-organized countries, demonism and satanic oppression have taken different forms, and are sometimes reduced to and explained away by the fields of psychology and psychiatry. Understood for what it is, it is the same Satan who oppressed the first-century world that disturbs modern humanity.

It is important to stress that the Lord Jesus was also a great teacher and a powerful preacher. His teachings have served the purpose of advancing His Kingdom on earth but have gone beyond the walls of the Church into the public arena, with Human Resource, Administration, law, economics and other secular specialists fetching principles for their fields from the words that fell from His lips. Jesus Christ is still a great attraction!


As we seek to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, let us embrace the totality of His continued ministry of teaching, preaching, and healing. Let us join the ancient crowds on the shores of Galilee, in the fields and in the Temple courts and receive from the Lord instruction for life and godliness, and miracles of all kinds, at the times and in ways He chooses to work.


Jesus my Teacher, Preacher, and Healer, I worship you and seek to experience your ministry more and more. Please let me hear you in each work you do through your people in the Church. May I see you and hear you working your great ministries, for your dear Name’s sake. Amen!
