This came across my desk today and felt it had at least one factor: FAITH… But remember, Faith is a matter of the heart and not the head. Rom. 10:9-10. You can say with your mouth, “I really don’t believe it is going to rain,” But in going out the door your heart picks up the umbrella. Then you really down deep, feel for the rain….. And Jesus did not do many mighty works in Nazareth due to their unbelief, Matt. 13:58. Love in Jesus, Ken<><
“There is but one church of Christ Jesus and all who love and obey HIM are members.”
Today’s Scripture (From Joel )
“…And as they went, they were cured and made clean.” (Luke 17:14, AMPC)
One time in scripture, there were ten lepers who saw Jesus. They hollered out, “Jesus! Have mercy on us and make us whole!” Jesus could have healed them right then, but instead, He asked them to do something to express their faith. He said, “Go show yourself to the Priest, and you will be made whole.”
It’s interesting that those lepers were not supposed to be around other people. They had to live in colonies because they were contagious and considered unclean. I’m sure they debated among themselves, “Do you really think we should go? I don’t look any better. It’s just going to be a waste of our time.” But they dared to put action behind their faith. They decided, “Jesus said if we go, we will be well. Let’s go. Let’s take a step of faith.” The scripture says, “As they went, they were made whole.”
So take a step of faith. Put action behind faith.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, I choose to trust in You. I choose to be obedient to You. Even when it doesn’t make sense to my natural mind, I will obey You and walk by faith. Thank You for revealing Yourself to me and healing every part of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
