Faith and Healing

This is the fourth message in our series, The Gifts.  John teaches on the gifts of faith and healing found in 1 Corinthians 12:9.  John uses the story of the bleeding woman from Mark 5:24-34 to show us an example of faith and healing working together in the ministry of Jesus.  He teaches us about several kinds of faith found within the bible, and then expounds on the gift of faith, which is a mysterious surge of confidence from the Holy Spirit to believe God to move and use us or intervene in a supernatural way to accomplish His will.  We're then reminded that God has been and always will be a healer and that it is at His discretion that the gifts of healings are distributed throughout the church.  In summary, God is drawn to faith and God desires to heal and faith is often the precursor to healing.
