Without Faith, There Is No Power!

Luke 8:22-56
‘Where is your faith?’(25). The Lord is not looking for lip-service. He is looking for real faith. Some beg Jesus ‘to depart from them’(37). They don't want to know! Others long to ‘be with Him’(38). They don’t want to go! Some have no interest in worship. They don’t really want to get to know Jesus. Others love to ‘worship’, but they are so slow to witness. They need to hear Jesus’ words - ‘Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you’(39). Real faith worships. Real faith witnesses. We need both - Worship and Witness. Some - ‘the multitudes’(45) - touch Jesus superficially. They are interested - when everything seems exciting! They touch Jesus religiously. They do not touch Him by faith. Where is the ‘power’, the resurrection power (46,54)? Without faith, there is no power!
