The Already and Not Yet Blessings of Faith

This Sunday we are considering the third miracle in this second group of three. In this miracle, Jesus makes an announcement of good news concerning the forgiveness of sins. He also backs that up with a demonstration of his authority to forgive sins. The text is Matthew 9:1-8. The message is entitled, “The Already and Not Yet Blessings of Faith.” We will consider these four points:
1. The first and chief blessing that comes with faith.
2. The scoffing of unbelief.
3. The redemptive-historical sign and its significance.
4. The proper response to this miracle.
