Faith in who?
This week the focus of our collective prayer is Faith. The text we heard on Sunday speaks of two people being miraculously healed--one from a 12 year illness and one from death! Jesus points to faith in himself and his ability to heal as key to the miracles happening. Faith means trust. Everyone has faith. Everyone trusts. The real question is... who do you trust?
“Everyone has faith; the question is whether the object of our faith is worthy of our trust. Jesus is worthy because He is pure love, unequalled authority and infinite truth.” -Greg Mitchell
Below are some verses that you can meditate on.
Mark 11:22-24 | 22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly[a] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
1 Corinthians 2:5 | 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
1 Corinthians 5:7 | 7 For we live by faith, not by sight.
Luke 17:5 | 5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!"
