  • Olabode for verse 23
    In Christendom, faith is inevitable. In the past, faith helped them to get their healing,deliverance,miracles, freedom etc. even in the present and will also help in future.We received Jesus as our lord and personal savior through faith. We are healed from our wounds and sicknesses through faith. From today text, we could see that, Jesus was telling his disciples to have faith. The man that came to him trusted and put his faith in him. So, for everyone of us to receive something good from him, we need faith. no wonder! Heb 11 1 says faith is substance of things hope for and evidence of things not seen. The also says that without faith, it is impossible to please him.
  • MockingBird for verse 23
    To believe is to commit rely on trust in complete confidence . To deposit. Faith pleases God Faith activates God on my behalf fear activates the devil on my behalf. Choose you this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house spirit soul and body we will serve the Lord.
