He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20
Faith. We all have it…but in what?
We have faith that when we sit in a chair it will not collapse.
We have faith that when we buy food at the grocery store it is safe to eat.
We usually have faith in people we love…until they let us down.
This week’s verse is so important to our lives of Christian faith. In this passage Jesus was talking to his disciples about why Jesus was able to drive a demon out of someone who the disciples had failed to. They were asking Him why He could when they could not. This was Jesus’ response to them.
Since we are Jesus’ disciples to this applies to us as well!
So that means that with faith nothing will be impossible for us.
…no, not that.
…and not that either.
This verse is not a ‘magic spell’ that means every wish of ours will be granted. It does mean however that if something — anything is in line with God’s will for our lives, our families, our churches…He will bring it to pass through us.
Do you know how big a mustard seed is?
God’s not asking us to have a lot of faith…just a little. And through that faith He can do ANYTHING!!
(yes, even that)
