Jesus Walks on the Sea(A)

45 (B)Immediately He [a]made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while He sent the multitude away. 46 And when He had sent them away, He (C)departed to the mountain to pray. 47 Now when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land. 48 Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea, and (D)would have passed them by. 49 And when they saw Him walking on the sea, they supposed it was a (E)ghost, and cried out; 50 for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He talked with them and said to them, (F)“Be[b] of good cheer! It is I; do not be (G)afraid.” 51 Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind (H)ceased. And they were greatly (I)amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled. 52 For (J)they had not understood about the loaves, because their (K)heart was hardened.

Many Touch Him and Are Made Well(L)

53 (M)When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. 54 And when they came out of the boat, immediately [c]the people recognized Him, 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that (N)they might just touch the (O)hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.

Ten Lepers Cleansed

11 Now it happened (A)as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, (B)who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, (C)“Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice (D)glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a (E)Samaritan.

17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 (F)And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking(A)

(B)“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For (C)everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (D)Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, (E)being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
