All Things Well



“And [the crowds] were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well!” (Mark 7:37)

At one point in Jesus’ earthly ministry, “great multitudes came unto him,” and He healed the physical maladies of those who “were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others” (Matthew 15:30). Mark 7:31-37 illustrates the healing there of a hearing-impaired man. Verses 33-34 are packed with verbs underscoring the precision of the Master Surgeon. He “took him aside,” “put his fingers into his ears,” “spit,” and “touched his tongue.” Then, looking up to heaven, Jesus commanded, “Be opened.”

Immediately the man’s ears heard and his mouth spoke plainly (v. 35)—a healing that was complete, unlike “huckster healing” practices that only alleviate pain temporarily. And the people present were “beyond all measure” (hyperperissōs, a forceful adverb used only here in the New Testament) “astonished” (exeplēssonto), or struck with amazement (v. 37).

Notice the crowd’s commentary, reacting to the many miracles they had seen Jesus perform: “He hath done all things well [kalós, good].” Their declaration echoes God’s words at the beginning of creation. Genesis 1:31 states, “God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” Not only did God see His creative work as good, but the people in Mark 7 saw Christ’s miraculous work in the same way!

How amazed are you with the Creator God, the Lord Jesus Christ? Do you believe He spoke His creation into existence in six days, as Genesis 1 records? Are you amazed that He has done all things well as our Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, and Savior, including His saving work of propitiation on the cross? Is He your Lord and Savior? CM
