A Faith That Shows

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?

Perhaps.

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?
