He is Sovereign!

Mark 6:53-56 53 When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret and anchored there. 54 As soon as they got out of the boat, people recognized Jesus. 55 They ran throughout that whole region and carried the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. 56 And wherever he went—into villages, towns or countryside—they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.

They landed at Gennesaret and the people recognized Him. And everyone came from everywhere bringing the sick to Him.

Jesus didn’t come to earth to heal people physically. He came to save our souls. People loved Jesus the giver of food and Jesus the healer. But only Christians love Jesus the ruler.

The crowd wanted full stomachs and well bodies. That’s wasn’t Jesus’ plan. God is not like us! He is sovereign. He is Savior!

Exodus 15:11 Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you—
majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?

2 Samuel 7:22 “How great you are, Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears."

1 King 8:23 “LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below—you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way."

Isaiah 40:18 and 25 18 With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him? 25 “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.

God made us in His image, but we keep trying to make Him into ours!
