1. Our church building where I preach sermons resides within the city limits of Ammon. Of course, that name in the Bible has a sordid history. We read about it, today. “It happened on the next day that the firstborn said to the younger, ‘Indeed I lay with my father last night; let us make him drink wine tonight also, and you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.’ Then they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose. . . . And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the people of Ammon to this day” (Gen. 19:34-35, 38).
2. What or Who is the hope is for Ammonites?
3. A leper in Matthew 8 came to Jesus and worshiped Him, saying, ” ‘Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.’ Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, ‘I am willing; be cleansed.’ Immediately his leprosy was cleansed” (Matthew 8:2-3). If Jesus can help a leper with physically cleansing, surely He can help an Ammonite with spiritual cleansing. And the complete cleansing of the sinful heart will be immediate.
