We have been asking the question: "If we really believe what we say we believe then we will..." Well, if we really believe it, then we will continue believing it throughout our lives. We wont walk away from our faith. As Paul is reaching the end of his life He affirms this. He has fought the good fight, he has finished the race, and he has kept the faith. I want to finish my life with my faith in tact too.
If we really believe what we say we believe, then we would believe Jesus when he says that a mustard seed of faith can move mountains. Jesus encounters a father with a mountain of a problem and he moves the mountain. What mountain sized problem are you facing and how can you bring it to Jesus by faith in prayer.
This years theme for our church is "We Believe". We will focus on the core beliefs of biblical Christianity. What is it we believe? We begin with the importance of faith itself. It doesn't matter what you believe if you don't actually put your faith in it. This week we look at the disciples who Jesus said over and over again "O Ye of little faith". Jesus reminds them (and us) faith matters.
