FOUR COMPONENTS (WORK)-1
Mark 2:3 “And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.”
Work is the fourth handle of the stretcher. This is another key component that got the man with the palsy healed.
By work in this context, I am not talking about your daily job; I am talking about the action that is attached to your faith. The challenge of many believers is not that they don’t believe God; the main issue is that they don’t act in alignment with their faith.
Somebody said, “A man that is trusting God for a car but busy pricing a motorbike is wasting his time, because he is negating his faith.”
It is not enough to read the Bible; do you believe what you’re reading? If you believe it, we will see it in your actions. Once a man saying one thing and acting otherwise, you know automatically that he doesn’t believe what he his saying. Hear this:
James 2:26 “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
The word “work” as used here means; action, deed or doing. In order words, “so faith without corresponding action or deed is dead or none productive.
You can fast, pray and read the Bible but if your action is antithesis to your confession there will be no result.
The four friends, heard about Jesus but didn’t remain at home, they took their friend straight to the savior.
If your faith will be productive, your prayer, word confession and actions must be in alignment. Hear this:
Matthew 9:20 “And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:”
Matthew 9:21 “For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.”
The woman with the issue of blood “said within herself”; that was her confession but despite her frailty and opposition she went to touch the Master. She made the move.
To be continued…
