Faith in Jesus Christ is a necessary condition for true spiritual healing, blessing and salvation. When the man of God says, “You are healed”, you are healed indeed – but you have a role to play. Remember, when Jesus met the man He healed at the pool of Bethesda, He said to him, ‘Look, you are healed now but you have a role to play or else you will not only lose this miracle; worse things will happen to you’ (John 5:14). What is this role Jesus is talking about? Jesus was telling him to accept the miracle by faith.
How do you accept a miracle by faith? We accept miracles by faith when we recognise the reason for the miracle. The Bible says the only genuine reason for receiving is salvation. When you receive for the sake of salvation, whatever you receive would stand the test of time because then you would worship the Giver rather than the thing you are given; you would worship the Creator rather than the created. Whatever we receive would come with the peace of God that would give us fulfilment in Christ and when you are fulfilled in Christ, you lack nothing and want nothing; you are content. When you are content, whatever anybody achieves out there does not matter to you. You would believe you are what God says you are. This is what I mean by seeking for salvation.
