“He has done everything well,” the crowd said. Though they didn’t know the “everything,” they weren’t wrong! His life, death, and resurrection—all was done well for us!

Mark 7:31–37 (Listen)

Jesus Heals a Deaf Man

31 Then he returned from the region of Tyre and went through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. 32 And they brought to him a man who was deaf and had a speech impediment, and they begged him to lay his hand on him. 33 And taking him aside from the crowd privately, he put his fingers into his ears, and after spitting touched his tongue. 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.” 35 And his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. 36 And Jesus1 charged them to tell no one. But the more he charged them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. 37 And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

     31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. 33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. 36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; 37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.(KJV)


Hymn: WS 761 :
In You Is Gladness

Hymnary.org

1. In Thee is gladness

Amid all sadness,
Jesus, sunshine of my heart.

By Thee are given
The gifts of heaven,

Thou the true Redeemer art.
Our souls Thou wakest,

Our bonds Thou breakest;
Who trusts Thee surely

Has built securely;
He stands forever: Allelujah!

Our hearts are pining
To see Thy shining,

Dying or living
To Thee are cleaving;

Naught can us sever: Allelujah!

2. If He is ours,

We fear no powers,
Not of earth nor sin nor death.

He sees and blesses
In worst distresses;

He can change them with a breath.
Wherefore the story

Tell of His glory
With hearts and voices;

All heav’n rejoices
In Him for ever: Allelujah!

We shout for gladness,
Triumph o’er sadness,

Love Him and praise Him
And still shall raise Him

Glad hymns forever: Allelujah!
