belief...

Yea so Jesus Says Just before that in Mark 9- " 'If you can'?" said Jesus (may Amie add he said probably said that a bit sarcastically). "Everything is possible for him who believes."

That same Jesus, showed the diciples and those around him how we can live in the kingdom of God. He healed people- like Malcolm says, transformed everyone around him in one way or another. Real belief is Guttsey- do i believe God can heal a terminal illness? Yes i say i do, but will i dare to ask someone in a hospital bed if i can pray for them? No. Then do i really belive God is good. Hes gotta be, look at Jesus, look at what he was pointing to- the kingdom of God.

I get tired, sometimes of thinking about this very fact- that the Kingdom of God is here, and yet often (and the media dont exactly help this) there is some pretty crapy stuff around. So Yes we hope- suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope (romans 5:3-4). but let our vision not become clounded or watered down. That the kingdom is here, increasing, and absolute Justice is being rolled out simply because we believe...

i think thats where im at today malcolm... :)
