“Just then some men brought to Him a paralytic lying on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus told the paralytic, “Have courage, son, your sins are forgiven.”
But Jesus turned and saw her. “Have courage, daughter,” He said. “Your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that moment.”
Matthew 9:2, 22 HCSB
Two verses regarding faith, and one thing that stood out to me: faith and courage go hand in hand. To have faith is to have courage. Courage that your sins are forgiven. Courage that I am healed. Courage that the Lord God of the Universe has heard my prayer. Courage that Jesus has truly forgiven me of my sins and that He has prepared a place for me! Courage to go out in the world with this knowledge and not be afraid of anything!!
