Our Only Hope in the Face of Death

Matthew presents the pinnacle of Jesus’ authority and power. He has power even over death. And he is willing and able to save all those that come to him by faith. Once again Matthew shows us that it is not the greatness of our faith and understanding, but the object of our faith that saves.
These two stories (the healing of the woman with a flow of blood, and the raising of the ruler’s daughter from the dead) are woven together in all the synoptic gospels. But here in Matthew, they are much abbreviated, emphasizing the great object of faith.
The message is entitled, Our Only Hope in the Face of Death.
We will consider these four points:
1. The great Need.
2. The great object of faith and hope.
3. The reward of faith.
4. The demonstration of our final deliverance.
