Jesus saw their faith (Luke 5:20).
It’s true, Jesus knows hearts (Mark 2:8; Luke 11:17; John 2:24-25). Was that how He saw the faith of the four men who brought their friend to Jesus for healing?
Did He simply look into their hearts?
But there’s another possibility . . . .
First, they carried him on a stretcher to the house where Jesus was teaching.
When they found the house too crowded to enter, they made a hole in the roof!
Hard work. Visible faith.
“‘You have faith and I have works; show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works” (James 2:28, emphasis added).
Jesus saw their faith. Can He see ours?
