Their Faith

“When He saw their faith, He said to him, ‘Man, your sins are forgiven you.’

“And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, ‘Who is this who speaks blasphemies: Who can forgive sins but God alone?’

“But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answered and said to them, ‘Why are you reasoning in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins -He said to the man who was paralyzed, ‘I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.'”

Luke 5:20-26

“He replied, ‘Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.'”         Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
