 Thought For Today  - September 10
What do we believe concerning the sayings of Jesus? 

    After hearing all these sayings of Jesus great multitudes followed him when he came down from the mountain.  We have listened to his sayings, how do we believe?
    A leper approached Jesus and begged him to heal his leprosy.  He believed that if Jesus wanted to, he had the power to heal him and restore  him to health.  “And Jesus put forth his hand and touched him, saying, I will be thou clean, and immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” Matthew 8: 3.  A centurion came to Jesus entreating him for his sick servant, that he might come and heal him.  “And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.” Matthew 8: 7.
    The centurion indicated his faith in the power of Jesus by saying that he need not come to his house, but that he speak the word only and it would be accomplished.  Jesus commended him for his faith. And  said:  “Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.  And  I say unto you, that many shall come from the east and west and shall sit down with Abraham and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.  But the children of the  kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”  Matthew 8: 10-12.
    We have heard Jesus say to us  that before we can enter in to the kingdom  of heaven we must be born again and become new creatures in Christ.  He said that he would accomplish this for us if we would believe .him.  We heard him say that he was the way, the truth, and the light, and that he was the narrow gate by which all men would enter into heaven.  He told us that we all are sinners and cannot save ourselves; that we need to be  forgiven and receive pardon from God.  He told us that without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin, and that the divine blood of the Lamb of God,( himself), was the only acceptable sacrifice given freely to all who will ask.  He told us that  we can ask and receive, to knock and it shall be opened unto us, to seek and we shall find.  He promised to forgive our sins and heal our diseases.  All that we receive from the Lord depends upon what we believe. 
    “And Jesus said unto the centurion, go thy way: and as thou hast believed so be it done unto thee.  And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.”  Matthew 8:13.
