And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
LORD Jesus we praise You. Help us, O God we pray, and open our eyes, our ears, our hearts, so that we may believe in the whole counsel of Your perfect Word. Let us discover, believe, and live what You require of us. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.
Do you believe in God? Do you have faith? What exactly is faith? The Bible says:
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
The Word of God says that we must first believe that God exists, and that, to be rewarded, we must diligently seek Him:
But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
So, let me ask you again: Do you believe and have faith in God? How about His Word? Do you believe His Word to be the Truth? Bits and pieces of it? A big part of it? All of it?
Before putting the person to be baptized under water our former pastor would ask the person one question:
Who is Jesus to you?
This goes deep, does it not? How would you answer it? Who do you say that Jesus is? What do you believe or not believe about Him?
Do you believe that Jesus is able to perform?
In today’s verse two blind men followed Jesus and said to Him: “Son of David, have mercy on us!” And, before He showed them mercy and healed them, He asked them if they would believe that He is able to do this. (Matthew 9:27-30)
Does Jesus show mercy? Is He able to heal the sick?
Do you believe that Jesus can see everything?
Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.”
Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God?
Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of God?”
Do you believe that Jesus is Life, and that with Him there is no death?
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?
In what or in whom do you believe in?
