Jesus' varied healing techniques also reflect this ability to personalize and contextualize his ministry to the needs of others. Jesus did not use one standard method of healing.
In today's texts, Jesus heals in a way that communicated his healing intentions with such "hands-on" force that even a man who could neither hear nor speak knew exactly what was happening, and he heals in a way that doesn't even require the presence of the one he is healing.
Are we as willing to do the extraordinary, the uncommon or the uncomfortable in order to do well for the sake of the Gospel? Are we able to put the goal of communicating the Good News of Jesus Christ above our own personal likes and dislikes, interests and concerns? Are you even willing to accept different styles and spirits in your own community?
