THE BASICS OF YOUR FAITH

THE BASICS OF YOUR FAITH

Jesus pointed out faith a lot of times.

Mat 13:58 - "But Jesus said, "A prophet is taken for granted in his hometown and his family." He didn't do many miracles there because of their hostile indifference. "

Mat 14:31 - "Jesus didn't hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, "Faint-heart, what got into you?"

Mat 8:10 - "Taken aback, Jesus said, "I've yet to come across this kind of simple trust in Israel, the very people who are supposed to know all about God and how he works. "

What is the basics for us as believers? For a lot of people it is:

* when things goes well with them

* when they have enough money

* when they are healthy

* when they are successful in their work

* when everybody agree with their view

* if wonders take place at the church

I am asking - is this the basics of our faith? What about the day when these things stop happening? What then?

* when your purse is empty?

* when you get sick?

* when people criticize you?

You see, when your faith is dependent on the outward or the temporary things, we will sink shortly just like Peter did when he took his eyes of Jesus in the sea. These things can never determined your faith, cause they come and go.

The only basics for faith is Jesus Christ and His Word! Heb 12:2 - "Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed - that exhilarating finish in and with God - he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honour, right alongside God."

It is a visible faith:

Mat 9:2 - "They were hardly out of the boat when some men carried a paraplegic on a stretcher and set him down in front of them. Jesus, impressed by their bold belief, said to the paraplegic, "Cheer up, son. I forgive your sins."

It is a great and big faith:

Mat 8:10 - "Taken aback, Jesus said, "I've yet to come across this kind of simple trust in Israel, the very people who are supposed to know all about God and how he works. "

PRAYER

Lord Jesus, everything will perish Only You and Your Word will stand forever! And this is what I build my faith on...Amen!
