Let's talk about FAITH

Have you ever seen a mustard seed? It's tiny and round. Jesus said over in the book of Luke "And the Lord said, "If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and be planted in the sea'; and it would obey you." Wow. That's some serious faith!

We attend our places of worship every Sunday or at least most of us do! It's very easy there to practice our faith and say that we have faith. Here are a few questions to ponder:

1. What about when the checkbook says you have little left and you need to tithe?

2. What about when your job is on the line?

3. What about when a family member finds out horrible news?

Faith it's the biggest 5 letter word i the entire Bible and in the dictionary. Also in the new testament Jesus said, "Faith without works is dead. James 2:26. It means that we must put some action to that faith. No, I"m not talking about "name it claim it theology." Never in my Christian faith have I believed that I can say God I believe you're going to give me money and then dollars start falling from the sky. I don't believe that is scriptural at all. That is my own personal belief. I"m talking like tithing when we should despite what the check book says. It's God at work. He promised to provide for our needs. Faith, such a big word and so easy to practice on Sunday morning! If we all just had a little more faith huh?!!! Trust me, I'm in the boat with ya!

Here's an anagram I saw on Faith several years ago and it's never left me. I felt led to share it with you today!






So, I would like to challenge you to put your Sunday morning faith into practice all week long! Go ahead, trust God! He knows your need, He's just waiting on us to exercise a little faith!

Let's pray:

Dear Lord,
It's so easy to trust you on Sunday mornings while I sit in my pew. Your word says faith without works is dead. Help me to put my faith into action during this week. Most importantly let others see Jesus in me. In Jesus' Name I pray-Amen
