More Faith?

imagesThink about those spiritual rock stars.  You know.  CS Lewis.  Mother Teresa. Billy Graham.  John Wesley.  John Calvin.

You know, those folks that really got it. That really did it. That man oh man, did God.  Man, God did some amazing things through them and in them. And man, there’s no way that we can ever measure up to them.  Our faith is so small.  Our faith is so weak.  Our faith is so insignificant.

We just need more faith, right?  If we had more faith then surly we could do it.  If we only had more faith.

That’s not what Jesus thought.  Listen to what He said today in Luke 17: 5-6:

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

The disciples said, Lord, we need more faith!  And to this He said, no.  You don’t.  Use the faith that you have.  Use what you’ve been given.  You have more than enough faith.  You can do it. Even little bitty, tiny little mustard seed faith can do amazing things.

Amazing things.

You have all you need.  Why do I say that?

Because you have Him.  If you have Him, then you have all that you need.  Trust in Him.  Place that faith in Him.

And He will do it.

Right now, at this moment, you have all that you need.  You can do it.  You have enough faith.  Place that faith in Him, act on it, and see what He will do.

He will do amazing things.  Because that’s what He does.
