Mustard Seed Faith

How big is your faith? How big is your mountain?

Jesus says your faith can be as small as a mustard seed and you can move mountains.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." • Matthew 17:20

That’s tiny, you guys. A mustard seed is tiny. That means that even if your faith feels small and you struggle with doubts and fears — nothing is impossible for you, according to God’s plan. We are not promised a perfect life free of trials and hardships. Open up your Bible and you’ll find a TON of evidence that knowing God, and even being close to Him, doesn’t keep you from bad times, sickness, hardship, and difficult people. But we ALWAYS have a mighty God by our side to help us through everything we are going through. And with just a little bit of faith, He can and will do amazing things through us.

The size of our faith doesn’t have to be great because we serve a God that is GREAT.  But the more we grow in faith, the better equipped we are to fight the works of the flesh and allow the fruits of the spirit to flourish in our lives.

Here are a few ways to get started:

• Love God and love your neighbor.
• Do all things for God’s glory.
• Be an imitator of Christ.
• Devote yourself to others in love and honor.
• Show kindness wherever you go, through actions and words.
• Tell people about Jesus.
• Read your Bible!
• Take care of your body.
