Faith is an essential virtue a good Christian needs to exhibit; with faith we can build our optimistic and positivity behavior. With faith, it helps us to build a good relationship with God as putting your faith in him depicts that he’s the only one that can do it. Taking a bible reference of Matthew chapter 8, where the power of faith was proved. From the verse 2 of the bible reference, a leper came to approach Jesus after he had gave teachings to the multitude saying “And, behold there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean(Matthew 8 vs 2 KJV)” from the bible verse, we could see that the leper had faith, which pushed him to approach Jesus for his healing, he put his belief in Jesus that it is only Jesus that could heal him of his infirmities. The faith he had made him to get his healing, from the subsequent verse ““And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed (Matthew 8 vs 3 KJV).
Another display of faith in the bible reference (Matthew 8) was when a centurion approached Jesus for the healing of his sick servant, Jesus offered to come to the centurion’s house to heal the servant but with the virtue of faith in the centurion, he told Jesus to just speak the word, that he believes the servant will be healed by the utterance of Jesus. With the great display of faith by the centurion, the servant got healed (Matthew 8 vs 5 – 13). Whatever you might be going through, you just need to have faith in God because only him can help out, but first you need to ask yourself if you are in line with God. If you are not, you need to set your way straight and give your life to him.
