Faith sees what the eyes cannot
🔸The limits of sight
If I believe only what I can see, I will never know God or experience His presence. Even though I have not seen Jesus, I accept by faith the word of reliable witnesses, I embrace the living Lord, and I believe. I know by faith in whom I have believed, I know that God’s free gift I have received, I know that He will keep me to the end, My Savior, my Redeemer, and my Friend.
Truth is: Faith sees what the eyes cannot
🔸The promise of power
Jesus’ physical resurrection fueled the disciples’ faith. At Pentecost, the disciples were baptized with the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ. God’s work is to be done in God’s power and God’s power is the Holy Spirit. Today I do not have to wait for the Holy Spirit to come. Like Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection, the historical event of Pentecost has happened. God now gives the Holy Spirit to indwell every believer. Jesus calls me to go first to those nearest me – my “Jerusalem.” I go next to my “Samaria” – my neighbors, cities or nations.
Truth is: The power of the Church comes from the prayers of God’s People.
To God be the Glory!
