28 When he entered 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.” 29 Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.”
The key to experiencing Salvation is your faith. Throughout the Gospels, Jesus referred to people’s faith to receive as being the key to how they experienced the many benefits of Salvation. Never once did He say, “Because I am God’s all powerful Son, you are healed”. Quite to the contrary, He would allow those who sought Him to receive according the faith they had in Him. In the same way that He doesn’t force you to love Him or to be born again, He will not force youth receive anything good that comes as benefit to your Salvation. He allows you operate according the faith that you have. Therefore, the extent to which you experience Salvation is directly related to the extent that your willing to live by faith. The time and effort that you’re willing to put into your relationship with Him directly translates into the strength of your faith. The stronger your faith the more you will be able to receive. The responsibility of how much you benefit from your Salvation is strictly upon you. He has already purchased it with His blood, but it’s up to you take hold of it. Healing, protection, provision, well-being, and overall wholeness in every area of your life are all benefits of the Salvation the He gave His life for you to have. How much Salvation are you experiencing in your life right now? There is always more available if you have faith to receive it. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff.
