Mustard Seed Faith

“…for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”  Matt 17:20

Many times we hear that someone’s prayer wasn’t answered because that person “didn’t have enough faith.”  So then we have to ask ourselves, ‘how much faith is enough?”  Or we wonder how we can grow our faith, so that we can “have enough faith.”  We think that perhaps some people just naturally have great faith, and other people just ended up in the shallow end of the faith pool.

But Jesus tells us “if you have faith as a mustard seed”…  God will do great things. If that is true, then what is mustard seed faith?  And… how do I get it?

Perhaps Jesus is trying to get us to see that the important thing is not the initial size of the seed, but what it can do when it is planted, watered, and grows. 

Join us Sunday as we explore another teaching moment with Jesus.


Till the whole world hears...
