Mark Day 4
And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:5
It is faith in God’s word that brings us into the presence, provision, and power of God. Jesus saw their faith. Faith is what God is looking for, not mere attendance or affirmation. Where there is faith there is action and we will not see it unless we preach His word. Jesus came preaching the word, the Bible says. The word of God expresses the love of God that creates Hope with God that inspires faith in God. We must be ready to share the word of God. That is where the hope, help, and healing lie, in His word. God operates in and through our lives by faith. He brings the truth and we put our faith in Him. That faith brought the paralytic and his friends to Jesus. Jesus had gone about preaching the word, speaking the word of God and that word worked like a magnet to bring people to God. That is what the word does. That is why we dare not dilute the word or dream that the ministry is about anything other than His word. Today we must speak the word of God, see through the word of God, and sit on the word of God for our lives. It is not what we think but what He knows that matters. Speak His word and let that word reveal the love that creates hope and inspires faith. We cannot walk in love and not operate in truth. His word is truth. Go with the word of God and let people come to it, not you.
