Read Matthew 15.29-31

“So the crowd marveled as they saw the mute speaking, the crippled restored, and the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.” (Matthew 15:31)


How many people did Jesus heal? Was it hundreds or maybe thousands? And what about the friends and family members who experienced a loved one being healed? Now, maybe we’re up to three thousand or more. And then there are the thousands who heard of His good deeds. Wouldn’t all those people have constituted a small army who could have risen to His defense? Surely they were in His camp they glorified God! And yet, when He stood before His accusers, there wasn’t even one who stood to defend Him in earnest. Perhaps its better to live with a lifetime of infirmities and still glorify Him, rather than an occasional flash-in-the-pan kind of praise that only happens when we treat Him like a cosmic vending machine. Lord, help us to glorify You even when You don’t heal us.
