DOES YOUR FAITH AFFECT OTHERS?
Luke 5:18-20New International Version (NIV)
18 Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. 19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. 20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
Here Jesus is just as impressed by the paralyzed man’s friends and their faith that Jesus would heal him if they could only get him to see Jesus. They went on the roof and let him down in front of Jesus, which was a whole lot of work on their part. Do you exert the extra energy to show your faith to others? Jesus is worth any amount of work we can do to bring others to Christ. Our belief and faith is shown thru what we do and what we say and how we act when others oppose us. Does your life reflect Jesus or the world? ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and make sure others see your faith inn your actions.
