"When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee." (Mark 2:5 KJV) Faith always has a visible manifestation! One can't simply say "I have faith" and not add actions with it. Even though the object and or objectives (end results) of our faith may not be seen, the actions of what we believe will! Faith actions will overcome great obstacles to achieve it's desired end. How could Jesus not respond to seeing the roof where He was, literally torn off by the faith actions of the individuals bearing their friend! Will He not also respond when He sees the visible manifestation of ours?
Prayer: Lord, thank you in advance for responding when you see the actions of our faith. Amen!
James 2:26. . . .For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. KJV
