Moody: unbelief

Thursday, October 7, 2021
    “‘If you can [help us]’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.”
    Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
    —Mark 9:23-24 (NIV)
    Unbelief is as much an enemy to the Christian as it is to the unconverted. It will keep back the blessing now as much as it did in the days of Christ. We read that in one place Christ could not do many mighty works because of their unbelief. If Christ could not do this, how can we expect to accomplish anything if the people of God are unbelieving?
    ... Dwight Lyman Moody (1837-1899), “To the work! To the work!”: Exhortations to Christians, Chicago: F. H. Revell, 1884, p. 41 (see the book)
    See also Mark 9:23-24; Matt. 9:22; 13:57-58; 14:31; Mark 6:4-5; John 20:24-28; 2 Thess. 3:2; Tit. 1:15-16; Heb. 3:12; Jas. 1:5-8; 1 John 5:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, plant Your faith within me.
