True faith is living faith. It is many-faceted.
First Faith Lesson from the Gospel
Matthew 8:5-10 – Great faith understands that Jesus’ power and authority are much greater than anything else under the sun.
Great faith understands the relation of cause and effect between Jesus’s power and His authority.
Second Faith Lesson from the Gospel:
Matthew 15:21-28 – Great faith is bold in claiming God’s promises with great humility.
Third Faith Lesson from the Gospel
Mark 4:35-41 – Weak faith is characterized by doubting God’s love, God’s wisdom, God’s omniscience, and God’s omnipotence. Jesus rebukes the disciples for having weak faith. It is not “ok” to not trust Him because of a really big storm in our life.
Weak faith focuses on circumstances instead of focusing on Jesus.
The relationship between God’s absolute power/authority, His promises — and our prayer of faith. Hebrew 11:1
