Mound Visits, 8/30/17
Your faith is important; not only to you, but to those in your sphere of influence as well. Your faith and obedience may lead someone to Christ today. My favorite story in the Bible is about a small group of men carrying a paralytic friend on a mat to be healed by Jesus. When they arrived at the house where Jesus was teaching and healing, they couldn’t get in because of the large crowd. The paralytic’s friends didn’t give up. They carried him to the roof, took apart the tile and then lowered him right in front of Jesus! “When Jesus saw THEIR FAITH, he said, ‘Friend, your sins are forgiven.'”
(Luke 5:20 emphasis mine)
Your unbelieving friends are watching you more closely than you think. At just the right time, your faith will make an eternal difference!
