Testimony of Faith

In Matthew 9, Jesus heals several sick people. In one case, He raises a girl from the dead. In three of these miracles, Jesus tells the person he or she was healed by their faith.

At some point, everyone who follows Jesus was healed by faith. At the base of every believer’s story is this simple theme: “I put my faith in Jesus, and he fixed me.” That’s my story. It’s your story, and it’s a powerful tool for spreading the Gospel.

Every story is different. In my case, the “disease” Jesus fixed was pride. I was only 13, but I was in love with myself. I was a good kid. Everyone loved me, and I was living life right. An image of Jesus on the cross changed my perspective. I had always said Jesus was Lord, but I had never taken time to contemplate the significance of what He did for me. When I focused on the image of Jesus on the cross, I realized I was proud of myself for nothing.

Here I was born into a loving family and a peaceful environment. And there on the cross was Jesus. He was physically ripped apart to rescue people like me, who wouldn’t be born for thousands of years. When this clicked in my mind, I was suddenly embarrased by my pride. I broke down and prayed to God for forgiveness. I put my faith in Jesus, and he fixed me.

With each healing, Jesus’s fame spread. The same is true when we share our stories today. So what has Jesus healed you from? And who will you tell?
