Emulate the Middle Man!

Passage: 1 Kings 8:22-24,1 Kings 8:27-30,Galatians 1:1-12,Luke 7:1-10

Even those who praise God with their lips still limit His impact in our world today, or restrict His abiding presence. Solomon dedicates his temple (or is it God’s temple?) by acknowledging the Lord cannot be contained. The Galatians were confused by new teachings; they reject His lavish grace. A centurion, wanting his slave to be healed, use Jewish elders as brokers, then tells him it’s too late. Nothing is impossible with God, Jesus assures us. And then goes to show us the gifts and grace of God are for all people and bestowed lavishly.
