The First Need
Faith, a lively faith, would cure all our spiritual disease, and supply all our needs. It was the one thing Our Lord required of
those who came to Him petitioning for favours when He was on earth. It is what He wants of us all now. 'He could not do many miracles there because of their unbelief,' we are told, as if this evil disposition tied His hands and restricted even His omnipotence.
