Open Our Ears, Lord. (Mark 7:31-37)

Ciaran Loughran, September 17, 2017
Part of the Misc. series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

When we hear something wonderful we can't help but tell others about it. People were so overwhelmed by Jesus that they kept speaking of Him. How often do we, who have our ears and eyes opened, speak to others of His great love and grace for us?

Mark 7:31-37

31 Then he returned from the region of Tyre and went through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. 32 And they brought to him a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment, and they begged him to lay his hand on him. 33 And taking him aside from the crowd privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and after spitting touched his tongue. 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” 35 And his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. 36 And Jesus charged them to tell no one. But the more he charged them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” (ESV)
