And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. Luke 17:5-6
The Apostles ask Jesus to increase their faith, but notice Jesus response. He didn’t say I’ll give you more faith to believe , he said if you guys actually had some faith you would be able to see Gods glory and power! See faith is a problem with us and not God
We limit Gods works but the limit of our faith in Christ. I was discussing this with a friend the other day, why do we not see the miracles performed today like we seen in the early church? Well how do we compare to the early church? In the book of Acts they sold everything, left everything behind to follow Jesus and serve him, are we doing the same today?
Absolutely not, our faith is pathetic compared to the early church , this is why we don’t see great miracles being performed today. Until we are all in, we will not see all of Gods glory and power!
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. Luke 17:10
But we as Christians love to brag about all the things we do. We brag because we worship 1 day a week, we brag because we actually read our Bible, compare this to the early church. It says they were worshipping daily , breaking bread (communion), preaching the gospel in the streets even if it meant losing their life
Jesus said I commanded you to do these things, don’t look for credit or fame. This is your duty as a Christian!
