5 Steps of Faith


Mark 5
25  Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,
26  and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
27  When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.
28  For she said, "If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well."

Five Steps of Faith
·       What we hear makes a difference
·       What we believe makes a difference
·       What we say makes a difference
·       What we do makes a difference
·       What we share makes a difference

Faith makes things possible, not easy …

Mark 5
29  Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
30  And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched My clothes?"
31  But His disciples said to Him, "You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ’Who touched Me?’"
32  And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.
33  But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
34  And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."

Someone is hearing the Word of the Lord today. Grab on to it; dare to believe it; tell yourself it’s true; step out and take the first step in faith; and be willing to share your story with others.

Today is your day! Have faith in God today …
