Re:Verse passage – Matthew 9:18-19; 23-26 (day four)
It is Christmas morning as I write this blog post…a day when the birth of Christ is foremost in our minds and hearts. The question is, “will I remember Him so readily the rest of the year?” The miracles we have studied this week and the past several weeks have shared a common denominator…Jesus has attributed the miracle to faith. When a need arises, often my first thoughts are…”how can I solve this need?” If Christ is foremost in my mind, I would go to Him just as Jairus, the Synagogue official did. Maybe the ‘miracles’ we see in Scripture would be common-place in our lives if we walked by faith. “Only believe”…that’s what Jesus said. Only believe and you will see the power of God work in your life. Only believe and people will be drawn to Christ because they saw Him at work in you. Only believe and you will be walking in obedience. Only believe!
