Luke 7:22 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Luke 7:22

So, he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.”


Growing up, people always used to ask, “who is your hero?” It always made me uncomfortable because I didn’t have one. I had people I looked up to or loved, but none of them were hero status to me. Then I met Jesus Christ, and I realized He had been my hero all along! He ran into the burning building that was my life and carried me on His shoulders to freedom and true salvation! Because of Jesus, I can look in the mirror and not hate what I see. I see a sinner saved by grace and covered by the Blood of God’s Son!


Last night, I was praying and thinking about all these different miracles Jesus performed on different people, and the Holy Spirit revealed to me that He performed them all on me as well!! I was blinded by pride, and He opened my eyes with His humility! I was lame, and He taught me how to walk in the Spirit! My leprosy was a heroin addiction, and He cleansed and restored me to my family! I couldn’t or wouldn’t listen to anything or anyone until His kindness opened my ears! I was dead and rotting in my sins until He reached in the grave and said, “This one is Mine!”


The best news I ever heard was that Jesus Christ came to save sinners, not to condemn them, and guess what? I am a sinner who needed a Savior, and He found me right in my mess!!!


In case you don’t know Him, I would like to introduce you to my Hero. His name is Jesus Christ, He saved me, and He will save you too!!! All you have to do is ask, because trust me, He wants to be your Hero too!!!


Be saved, Be forgiven, Be redeemed, Be restored, and allow Christ to rescue you from the fire!


I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
