“As Jesus went from there two blind men followed him crying out, ‘Have mercy on us son of David.’.
When he had gone indoors the blind men came to him and he asked them “Do you believe that I am able to do this”
“Yes Lord” they replied
The Jesus touched their eyes and said according to your faith will it be done for you, and their sight was restored.
What’s interesting is that they were crying out to Jesus Have mercy on us son of David. Jesus at first Jesus didn’t seem to respond straight away Its only when he went into a house, and they followed, and Jesus asked them a question Do you believe I am able to do this. It seems there is a big difference between passive faith and active faith. Many times, we have passive faith. None of us would say Jesus can’t heal today but that is passive faith. The question is do you believe Jesus can heal you here and now. That brings you into a place of active faith. Jesus was drawing these men out to active faith. Notice their immediate response Yes Lord. Jesus immediate response was according to your faith will it be done to you. Their faith was activated it was no longer passive. When we are asking for healing the question Jesus would ask is “Do you really believe I am to do this for you here and now. That’s a good question we all need to be honest about. There is nothing hit and miss. God will respond to active faith.
