“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
FAITH AND FAITHLESSNESS
A husband a wife were at church listening to the preacher talk about faith.
“And Jesus said unto them…for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove”
After arriving home, the wife said to the husband, “I find all that talk about faith so interesting. Do you think it’s true?”
“Sure do,” her husband replied.
“Ok then, I’m going to give it a try,” she said, wandering over to the front window. Outside in the distance was a small hill. “If all it takes is a mustard seed to move an entire mountain, surely I can get that hill gone by morning.”
“I don’t see why not!” her husband replied. “You heard the minister today — anything’s possible.” And with that, she determined to have the hill gone by morning.
The next day she awoke and went to the window, pulling the curtains back.
The hill was still there.
“Ah,” she said, “I knew it wouldn’t work.”
“For we walk by faith, not by sight”
Does the reader lack faith?
Read the gospel.
Then share it.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
