    Living Faith Brings Healing

    To talk of religion in a casual way, to pray without soul hunger and living faith, accomplishes nothing. A theoretical faith, which accepts Christ merely as the Savior of the world, can never bring healing to the spiritual life. Faith is not agreeing with truth intellectually. It is not enough to believe about Christ; we must believe in Him. Saving faith is a transaction by which those who receive Christ join themselves in covenant relationship with God. Genuine faith means an increase of vigor, a deep and willing trust, by which our spirit becomes a conquering power.HH 157.5

    After healing the woman, Jesus wanted her to acknowledge the blessing she had received. The gifts that the gospel offers are not to be enjoyed in secret. Our acknowledgement of His faithfulness is Heaven’s chosen way for revealing Christ to the world. The testimony of our own experience is what will be most effective. See Isaiah 43:12. When we back them up by a Christlike life, our personal stories of His grace have irresistible power that works for the salvation of others.HH 157.6

    When the ten lepers came to Jesus for healing, they were cleansed; but only one returned to give Him glory. The others went their way, forgetting Him who had made them whole. How many still do the same thing! The Lord raises up the sick, He delivers people from danger, He commissions angels to save them from disaster, to guard them from disease and destruction (Psalm 91:6), yet they do not remember His great love. By ingratitude they close their hearts against the grace of God.HH 158.1

    It is for our own benefit to keep every gift of God fresh in our memory. This will strengthen faith. Let us, then, remember the loving-kindness of the Lord. And as we review God’s dealings with us, let us declare, “What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me?” Psalm 116:12.HH 158.2
