  The Demon Possessed Mute  

Matthew 9:32-34
32 While they were going out, a man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus.
33 And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. The crowd was amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel."
34 But the Pharisees said, "It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons."

The demon possessed man brought in to Jesus staying place. He was made mute by the demon. (Have you noticed that sin makes us mute also? When we are in sin, we are not able to talk in confronting sin.) The crowd around them was so amazed that Jesus is able to cast out such a strong demon. They have seen or read that God used great men to do incredible healing miracles. Men like Elijah and Elisha were powerful instruments in God's hand in healing people. But people felt like those healing are nothing while they compare to this one that is taking place in front of their eyes.

We need to see great things happening in our life and in the Church now-a-days. We cannot spend our days, talking about "those good old golden days". How do we see that? Bring people to Jesus! There are so many around us, who are muted by sin and its burden and guilt. Unable to talk to anyone, they get entangled into many more evil. They live in dangerous addictions and deadly character flaws. Bring them to Jesus and you are the one who is going to be blessed, more than them. Our faith will increase; we will get more close to Jesus. If you are burdened by sins and its guilt (you don't have to be that way), decide to get the help of someone who could lead us to our gentle Savior.

We also see some of those Pharisees, who harden their heart, even in witnessing those great miracles. They refused to put their faith in Jesus. They kept finding some skeptical reason to justify their sinful minds. It is time to think bros, sisters. How is my faith? Is it increasing? This is the 22nd miracle and 22nd day. If my faith and my prayer life is not getting better, there is some serious 'things' within me that needs to be dealt with immediately.
