As they came near the gate of the town, they saw people carrying out the body of a widow's only son. Many people from the town were walking along with her. When the Lord saw the woman, he felt sorry for her and said, "Don't cry!" Jesus went over and touched the stretcher on which the people were carrying the dead boy. They stopped, and Jesus said, "Young man, get up!" The boy sat up and began to speak. Jesus then gave him back to his mother. Everyone was frightened and praised God. They said, "A great prophet is here with us! God has come to his people." News about Jesus spread all over Judea and everywhere else in that part of the country.
Luke 7: 12 - 17
The news about Jesus spread all over the country, not because of the wonderful words that He spoke. Jesus words were amazing, but healing the sick and raising the dead astonished and caught the attention of the people! When men and women see the undeniable power of God working in the lives of people around them, they will certainly tell others about Jesus.
Telling the story of Jesus without the Power of God being evidenced, is like demonstrating a new car without any gas in the tank! It may be the most beautiful automobile ever made, but without fuel it will not take you anywhere!
So, tell me the Story of Jesus, and show me the Power of God when you do! Remember, faith is not simply believing what has already happened, it is rather the evidence of things not yet seen! Believe that God will show His power to confirm the Gospel. That is what He did and demonstrating His power is what He will do again!
“Thank You Jesus, for being the same today, yesterday and forever! Amen.”
