Faith is demonstrative! The bible tells us that the gospel that we preach is not to entice people, but to demonstrate the power of the Spirit. Come to think of it, most of the lessons that Jesus taught His disciples began with demonstrations. Before He taught them how to remove obstacles, He first cursed the fig tree. Before He taught them how to fast, it was already clear to them that some demons won't leave them until they engaged a higher force. Before He taught them how to be calm in the face of heavy storms, He first rebuked the storm.
He also explained the mystery of thanksgiving with demonstrations. He gave thanks to God, and five loaves with two fishes fed over five thousand people. He gave thanks, and Lazarus, who had been dead for four days, came back to life. Faith is not passive, it is the active part of God's word. The bible tells us not to be hearers of the word only, but also doers, otherwise we'd be deceiving ourselves. That also means that hearing the word without acting on it is only a religious deception. Don't tell me you've been believing God, but God has not responded. God will only respond according to the level of your faith. And if you've not gotten what you want, it's simply because you've not supplied enough faith.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; A MUSTARD SEED KIND OF FAITH MAY MOVE A MOUNTAIN, BUT I'M NOT SURE IT WOULD BE ENOUGH TO RAISE A FAMILY, TO BUILD AN EMPIRE, OR TO LIVE A HAPPY LIFE. LET'S DEVELOP OUR FAITH! Have a most fruitful day! In Jesus precious name!
