This is HUGE! I have been studying the word as I feed my faith on Youtube videos of Dan Mohler and Todd White's preaching. These two men are living like Jesus in that they love people and perform mighty healing miracles everywhere they go all the time. The video I watched today spoke DIRECTLY to this single job God has given to us- the work of believing! You might enjoy hearing his story of being a "preacher of healing" WHILE his rotator cuff was torn. They believe, as I do, that all Christians should live and walk like Jesus does, being dead to themselves, and alive to God in Christ. As I wondered how I can have the courage to do the same works they do, (Christ does through them), I read this verse tonight. Jesus gives the simple one word answer to people like me who want to know what it takes to live like Christ. It takes only one thing- only one work- and it is work. BELIEVING in Jesus. Believing He is all that He says he is, and will do all He says He will do. Believing He lives in me. Believing He loves people enough to die for them. Believing He wants them healed. Believing He wants them to come to know Him. Believing I am his ambassador.
Lord Jesus, you are God. You are love. Fill me with a good believing heart, that I may walk by faith and not by sight, fully surrendered to Your Holy Spirit and to your love at all times. In Jesus's name I ask, Amen.
