Are You a Believer?

Are you a believer? Don't you believe then that signs should "follow us." We're not to "follow signs," signs are to "follow us."

Mark 16:17-18 "These signs will accompany those who have believed: ... they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

Please understand, Jesus didn't say that we would lay hands on the sick "and pray a long 'King James' prayer." He said that we would simply "lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."

How many believe we should lay hands on the sick, as if Jesus actually meant what He said? He didn't ask us to do anything hard or difficult. Healing the sick might be hard, but that's what God does. Laying hands on the sick is easy, and that's what we do. He does the hard part, we do the easy part.

I can hear the thoughts in some of your minds, as I sit here and type. "What if it doesn't work?" To which I ask, "What if it does?"

In 2Cor 6, we're told that we are "workers with Him." He does His part, as we are obedient to do our part. He has chosen to utilize each of us in His plan. As we do our part, "lay hands on the sick," He does His part, "and they will recover."

What kind of testimony of God's love, mercy, and grace would it be if we allowed Him to do His part, by doing our part?

If we profess to be believers, don't you agree that we should dare to believe that He meant what He said, and dare to follow His instructions?

To God be all glory, honor, and praise, as we are faithful to do our part, which releases Him to do His part.

Bishop Dennis
