6.28.21 – Daily Dose of Worship. A study on Matthew. Part 144. Faith.

Matthew 9:29, “Then He touched their eyes, saying, ‘It shall be done for you according to your faith.'”

What an incredibly beautiful, yet simple verse. It shall be done according to your faith.

Jesus touches their blind eyes and tells them that their faith is the trigger for their miraculous restoration. It’s important to understand that these men are not healing themselves, nor is the healing power coming from their faith, itself. The men are healed “according to” their faith, not “by the power of” their belief.

It is Christ’s power—the power of God—that restores their sight. Their faith contributes to their healing to the extent that their faith is in Jesus and nothing else. Because He is the object of their faith, they will be healed by Him.

Because He is the object of their faith, they will be healed by Him.

Is Jesus the object of your faith? Do you put your faith in your own abilities, your wealth, your job, your health? These are all very valid questions when we get down to analyzing ourselves and our relationship with Christ.
