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?


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?
