What a beautiful confession: “He has done everything well.” He has done everything perfectly, in fact.

Scripture: Mark 7:31-37

ESV Text: Mark 7:31-37


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 7

     31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. 32 And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. 33 And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue; 34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. 35 And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. 36 And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; 37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 381:
I Know my Faith is Founded

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. I know my faith is founded 
On Jesus Christ, my God and Lord; 
And this my faith confessing 
Unmoved I stand upon His Word. 
Man’s reason cannot fathom 
The truth of God profound; 
Who trusts her subtle wisdom 
Relies on shifting ground. 
God’s Word is all-sufficient, 
It makes divinely sure, 
And trusting in its wisdom, 
My faith shall rest secure. 

2. Increase my faith, dear Savior, 
For Satan seeks by night and day 
To rob me of this treasure 
And take my hope of bliss away. 
But, Lord, with Thee beside me, 
I shall be undismayed; 
And led by Thy good Spirit, 
I shall be unafraid. 
Abide with me, O Savior, 
A firmer faith bestow; 
Then I shall bid defiance 
To every evil foe. 

3. In faith, Lord, let me serve Thee; 
Though persecution, grief and pain 
Should seek to overwhelm me, 
Let me a steadfast trust retain; 
And then at my departure 
Take Thou me home to Thee 
And let me there inherit 
All thou hast promised me. 
In life and death, Lord, keep me 
Until Thy heaven I gain, 
Where I by Thy great mercy 
The end of faith attain.
