Sermon: Healing is the Children's Bread (Luke 13:10-16)Tom Shanklin, July 1, 2008
Part of the Healing series, preached at a Sermons service
Jesus said the woman who was bowed over for 18 years ought to be healed. Why? Because she was a daughter of Abraham. Likewise, Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, that we might receive the blessings of Abraham. Through Jesus Christ we can receive these blessings. Tap in today!

10 Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11 And there was a woman who had had a disabling spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not fully straighten herself. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your disability.” 13 And he laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and she glorified God. 14 But the ruler of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the people, “There are six days in which work ought to be done. Come on those days and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” 15 Then the Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger and lead it away to water it? 16 And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?” (ESV)
