Pastor's Corner: The Master

In life, we see people who are experts in certain fields. Master plumber, master mechanic and master electrician are titles of people who are experts in those occupations. There are many people with a master’s degree, but Jesus Christ is the Master of all. I remember when I was a child, my pastor preached upon The Master. After hearing him preach, I came to the conclusion that Jesus can do anything. Jesus is the master of all things.

No wonder Paul calls Jesus our All in All. In Luke 8:24 in the midst of a storm Jesus was asleep and the disciples awoke him saying, ”Master, master, we are going to perish.” Jesus arose and rebuked the storm and there was a great calm. The disciples said to each other, “What manner of man is this! Even the winds and water obey him.”

Jesus is the Master of our troubled hearts. He has lifted up and encouraged the hurting. Jesus knows every tear you cry and every sorrow that comes your way. Jesus is the Master of comfort. In John 16:22 Jesus said, “Your heart shall rejoice.”

The Master brought comfort to the home of Mary and Martha when their brother Lazarus died. He is the Master when death comes around. He is the resurrection and the life. Jesus told the thief on the cross, “Today you will be with me in paradise." He is the Master.

Jesus is the Master over all sickness and diseases. The woman with the issue of blood would tell us, "No doctor could help me, I just got worse and I was dying, but I saw Jesus and I touched the hem of his garment, and I was healed.” He is the Master of all healing. A doctor told me one time that a lady in our church was not going to make it. She had been in a coma for a few months, but then the Master touched her and healed her, and she’s still going strong today.

Jesus is the Master. Never give up when the Master is on your side.
