The same response, again

luke 7 All the people were amazed [seized with fear; filled with awe] and began praising [glorifying] God, saying, “A great prophet has come to [appeared/arisen among] us! God has come to help [looked favorably on; visited] his people.”
Luke 7:16 (The Expanded Bible)

Just two chapters after 5:26, we see an almost identical response to Jesus. This time Jesus brought a widow’s son back to life, and the people were filled with awe.

Doesn’t Jesus bring us back to life every day? What is our response? Shouldn’t it be the same? “A great prophet is among us! God has visited us!”

Such an incredible gift—God is with us. He has come to help us. May we always give him praise for his kindness!
