If you only had three years to do a monumental project, what would you do? Chance has it that you would clear the deck, ignore most people, and just focus on that singular initiative. You would have little time for people and their random problems. But Jesus had an entirely different approach. In this sermon, John D. Barry draws on his field research for his book, "Jesus' Economy: A Biblical View of Poverty, the Currency of Love, and a Pattern for Lasting Change" as he expounds upon a scene of Jesus healing a man in Luke 18:35–43. This sermon was originally delivered at Third Christian Reformed Church in Lynden, WA on March 31, 2019.
