Mark 10, 51-52

I.

Jesus responded to this man’s faith and healed him.  He believed Jesus could and in confidence asked him to do it. “Thy faith hath made thee whole.”  “According to your faith.”

II.

He followed Jesus–was henceforth loyal to him, clung to him, lived a new life.

(1)  Every man needs something beyond himself as the center and inspiration of life, something to give meaning and coherence to life.  Why?

(a)  We are made that way.  Men who deal with souls trying to help them find it true.  Without it life will break down.

Loss of faith in God and immortality may cause the nerves to shatter and the health to fail.

(b)  The Holy Spirit dwelling in us will “quicken our mortal bodies” (Rom. 8, 11).  He animates the body, and this helps even health.  Much more does his presence give peace and joy and power to meet life well.

III.

God in Christ is the only worthy, adequate object of our loyalty.  “Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.”

He will help in every time of need.  “My grace is sufficient for thee.”

Let us reaffirm our loyalty to him and be true to him always.

“Holy is his name.”
