After all that the disciples had seen, it was hard for them to fully put their faith in Jesus. That was a theme repeated throughout the gospels. “If you only had the faith of a mustard seed you could say to this mountain be thrown into the sea and it would,” Jesus told them. Somewhere over the next few years, after even more and greater miracles, the disciples came around. After Jesus’ ascension this wishy washy group of men became a force for the world to reckon with. In the face of staggering odds they proclaimed the gospel message not only in Israel, but across the Roman world.
What will it take in our lives to simply “have a little faith”? What if we had a faith that solid and sure, a faith firmly planted in Jesus? Like a fine perfume, a little bit goes a long ways. What could we accomplish, what mountains could we move? We’ll only know if and when we do it, so, have a little faith.
