2/22: Faith Can Be Seen

Most of us probably think of faith as a private, internal thing. However, Jesus doesn’t think of faith that way. In several different instances, Jesus saw people’s faith.

For example, in Mark chapter two, Jesus saw the faith of the men who brought their paralytic friend to Him to be healed. Jesus also remarked about the great faith He saw in a Centurion soldier who believed that all he needed was Jesus’ word to heal his servant (See Mark 2:1-12 and Luke 7:1-10.) He saw the faith of these people because they exhibited action. The tenor of these examples was excitement in Jesus’ attitude.

Although Jesus seemed to like seeing people’s faith, unfortunately, it also seemed as if doing so did not happen as often as He would have liked. Each time people were bold enough to approach Him to ask for what they needed, He responded with both an approving comment and a healing touch.

Does Jesus see your faith? Do you boldly approach Him with your needs, fully expecting Him to touch or speak and make the changes you desire? Try it! Boldly approach and expectantly believe.
