The Power of One
(Matthew 9:1-8) Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. (2) Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” (3) At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, “This fellow is blaspheming!” (4) Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? (5) Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? (6) But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” (7) Then the man got up and went home. (8) When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to man.
Your Faith Saves!
(Hebrews 11:7) By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.
(2 Corinthians 1:3-4) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, (4) who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
- Your Praise Delivers!
(2 Chronicles 20:21-22) After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.” (22)
As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.
- Your Prayers Bring Breakthrough To Others!
(Matthew 9:2) When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.”
