Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading:

Matthew chapter 8 is an amazing record of what our Saviour was like. He cleansed the lepers, and they were made whole. He healed the sick and raised them up, even without actually coming to their bedsides (like the centurion's servant). He preached the Gospel and thousands came to hear and were touched by the Truth. He spoke to a storm - and it was instantly calmed. He cast out demons - and the demon-possessed were transformed into evangelists. If I was to describe Christ in two words, it would be "Spiritual Potency".

Can you imagine what planet earth would be like if Christ walked here with that level of Spiritual Potency - today?  Actually, we aren't supposed to just try to imagine it. We are - by His Grace - supposed to live it. Spiritual potency wasn't only supposed to characterize Yahshua. He is our Example in all things - and our Source of Empowerment. All followers of Christ are to have His kind of Spiritual Potency, in Him:
John 14:12-14  "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will do it." 
So what's wrong with our picture? Why don't we have Spiritual Potency, in Christ? Consider the following video and be encouraged. You have a part to play in gaining the Spiritual Potency that God Wills for each of His children to manifest:
