Christ Cured a Man and Called for Good Pastors


Matthew 9:32-38


Jesus cured a man who had been possessed.

Jesus proved that He was the Messiah.

The simple of heart saw His great power.

The twisted thinkers misinterpreted.


Matthew summarized the program of Christ.

The Apostles were sent to work God’s fields.

The plight of the people moved Jesus Christ.

He preached the Gospel and worked miracles.


Christ called His disciples to do the same.

Go preach the Gospel before every game.

Do the best that you can for God’s Glory.

His gifts make for a wonderful story.


We need more vocations for priests and nuns.

To do the work of God is more than fun.
