As Jesus passed on his way two blind men followed him with the cry, “have pity on us, Son of David!” And when he had gone inside the house these two came up to him. “Do you believe I can do it?” he said to them. “Yes, Lord,” they replied. Then he touched their eyes, saying, “You have believed and you will not be disappointed.”
Belief is VERY different than knowledge. The dictionary suggests that knowledge is made up of facts, information and skills acquired through experience or education. And belief, well belief is the acceptance of something as true, with or without proof.
Jesus does not ask the two blind men if they know he can heal them, instead he asks them if they believe. Faith is not a matter of knowledge. It is a matter of belief.
Beloved, what do you believe? Dr. Sami has set up a bulletin board inviting each of us to write down what we believe. Stop by the bulletin board in the education wing hallway and share what you believe. And, if you are not local, but would like to share your thoughts, send an email to the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will put it up for you. What do you believe?
