"I passed your Word on to them"
John 17 : 11 - 19
Jesus is always at his best when he meets up with the sick, the blind, the lame, those who need his help most urgently. Invariably he reaches out to them with compassion and love, but he does question their motives, why have they come? “Do you believe”? is the basic question, to which the response comes unswervingly; I do believe, Lord. He also asks as in today: ”What do you want me to do for you”? “Master, let me see again”, comes the swift response. Faith is always rewarded: “Go, your faith has saved you”. Immediately his sight returned, Mark tells us, he followed Jesus along the road.
Can our faith stand up to scrutiny? How do I measure up when tested?
Do you believe I can do this? Can I answer positively?
Prayer : Lord, again and again, I pray for an increase of faith and total trust in your promises. You have promised me so much. Amen.
