DEVOTION: “All unbelief is sin” (pg 199)
Pretty rough sentence. Let me expand the passage a little.
“There is nothing outside of purity except what is sin. All unbelief is sin. God wants you to have a pure, active faith so that you will be living in an advanced place of believing God all the time, and so that you will be on the mountaintop and singing when other people are crying.” (pg 199)
So…I’ll go back to the original sentence. All unbelief is sin.
I have a prayer bowl, as a lot of you know, and in it I place all of my prayer requests. I write them on cards and throw them in there so that when I actually sit down to pray…I know what to pray for.
The last card that I threw in there just the other day states….Help my unbelief.
“But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us. “If You can? echoed Jesus. “All things are possible to him who believes! Immediately the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe; help my unbelief! – Mark 9:22 – 24.
It’s a convicting passage. Jesus echoes the man and exclaims….”If You can”.
Maybe this guy didn’t know who he was talking to or…maybe he was in such a state that he couldn’t believe. Just didn’t believe that it could be done. That his boy could be healed.
The story goes on to state that Jesus heals the boy, drives the spirit out of him.
What is your story going to state tomorrow? Is it going to talk about your continued unbelief? Or is it going to talk about how your belief has brought you through…..
