"A Warrior and a Widow"

 Today, Pastor Brandon teaches from Luke 7: 1-17, a passage which presents two proofs of the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus. The first section of Chapter 17 tells of the Centurion, a Gentile, whose beloved servant is dying. The Centurion understands authority and has faith that Jesus has authority over all of life. Jesus heals his servant. The next section tells of the widow whose only son has died, leaving her alone with no means to support herself.  When Jesus sees her grief, he has compassion on her and raises her son from death to life again.

Both of these stories call to mind Old Testament passages that the Israelites recognized: 1) Elisha and the healing of Naaman, the Aramite commander (2 Kings 5:8), and 2) Elijah and the raising to life of the widow’s dead son (1 Kings 17:23).
