Despite constant discussion of grace and forgiveness in church life, it’s still easy to hold on to regrets, shame, and self-condemnation. Our past seems too dark to wipe out, our sins too great to be covered. And yet this passage shows the power of Christ’s healing to make us clean. Christ heals the bleeding woman in a display of divine power and purity, allowing her to return to the temple and to worship in community.
We see our own story in this passage—Christ extends his salvation to us and overcomes our sin, making us pure and holy in his sight, which allows us to live freely and fully in Christian community.
In this fourth sermon in the Waymaker series, Pastor Bogdan will make the case that God making a way for someone else, doesn’t mean He won’t for you.
