Devotions: Be Opened

In Mark 7:31-37, a group of people bring a deaf man who also has a speech impediment to Jesus and beg him to lay his hand on him. _is group is looking not to test Jesus or to witness a miracle for their sake. They are looking for help. Something that they were not able to give to this man. They are looking for Jesus to help this man heal and speak once again. And Jesus, out of compassion for this man, took the man aside, put his finger in the man’s ear and touched his tongue, and said, “Be opened” – and the man could hear and speak plainly. Jesus does not ask for payment or their loyalty. Jesus does not do it for power or for more followers. Jesus does this because this was the reason why he was sent – to heal the broken in spirit, to bring hope to the hopeless, and to reassemble those who are wounded, hurt, and unable to help themselves. Jesus came to heal our souls and to bring us peace through forgiveness. And like those who witnessed this miracle, let us have the courage to praise God and to offer our thanks daily. Thanks be to God who looks with kindness and love on each and every one of us.

“Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, … ‘Be opened.’

And immediately his ears where opened, his tongue was released, and he

spoke plainly. Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered

them, the more zealously they proclaimed it.” (Mark 7:34-36)
