Inside Story: The Stolen Cow — 3 Comments

  1. Thanks to God that the thief got touched by the lord's power to take back the cow to troubled woman. The story really encourages me to always put all my worries to the lord and a wonderful answer will always be given to me. Am also happy to discover this source of spiritual parent which i hope it will help me much to prosper spiritually. Thank you very much and may God bless you biggest.

  2. A faith-building piece indeed. That was really challenging.
    Pls let us note some things.
    1. The woman "beleived" right from home that the cow would return.
    2. The woman went to see her Pastor,not necessarily to show him that she has faith,but to lay the issue to his awareness.
    3. She went further to the mayor for same reason.
    Now, Christ told the woman "thy faith hath made thee whole",not "thy touching me",but "thy faith". This means faith was all she needed and she had it.
    In Matt 9, we read "according to thy faith,be it unto you",not "according to thy works",but "thy faith".
    Now, if this woman TRULY had faith,would it be necessary that she starts walking to and fro the city? Is that in itself-the act of doing the informal searching-not a sign that she had little or no faith?
    I believe a reason why she did not go for a real search was because she had no suspect in mind.
    Does not the faith she has demand that she added no works upon it to see to the restoration of the cow? I mean, does her action not show that she probably felt if she did not bring the case before those two authorities she may not get the cow?
    Now, I say this to bring to our thoughts the unsoundness of the arguement against "faith and works" in favour of "faith alone".
    The Bible talks about a certain "faith which worketh by love" (Gal 5) and "mixing our works with faith" (Ro 9). This is exactly what this woman did.
    She believed His cow would return. Then she acted on this faith by going to see those authorities,to fulfil all righteousness.
    Greetings from Nigeria.
    Happy Sabbath.

  3. Being faithful to God requires a pure and true heart. This was shown by the women whose was stolen. Being challenge sometimes you need to be relax and think for the best solution for that problem. May we always be calm and reflect God's character to people around us.
