Who Can Forgive Sin? by Jerry Vines

WHO CAN FORGIVE SIN?
Matthew 9:1-8
There is no limit to the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
There is nothing that Jesus Christ cannot do. There is no place
where Jesus Christ cannot work. Jesus has power in every realm.
He has power in the realm of the physical, the nature and the
spiritual. At the conclusion of the Gospel of Matthew, (28:18)
the Lord Jesus said,

city of Capernaum seemed to be oblivious to the presence of the
powerful Lord Jesus in their very midst.
That's the way it often is. Sometimes God does a work right
in the midst of the city and the city never even acknowledges that
God is at work. We should never be surprised when this world
doesn't acknowledge the work of God. We should never be amazed
when this world hardly takes notice of what God is doing in it's
midst. This particular miracle may have been performed in the
house of Simon Peter. I personally believe that is ...
