Without faith in JESUS, you have no eternal life, no forgiveness of sins, no reconciliation with God! Faith is believing JESUS. No one is forced to believe but blessed are those who believe in the Son of God, for they have eternity with God! It is written in Hebrews 11:6, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
JESUS rebuked his disciples for little faith in him. Today, little faith is rampant in believers hearts. Why? Because of doubt! Many christians today are doubting JESUS and that doubt has become a stumbling block in their faith. Right from the garden of Eden, the serpent satan cast doubt into the heart of Eve and she doubted God and believed the devil.
He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman.
The woman (church) of today has likewise heeded the cunning words of satan because of her doubting JESUS. The church today is drowning in the waters of the world because of little faith, just as it is written in Matthew 14:28-31,
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
The same can be asked today, why is the church in doubt? She ought to be walking on water to meet the LORD JESUS ! Nevertheless, the church can still call on the name of the LORD JESUS and be saved like Peter did. However, it is time for the church to cast doubt aside and embrace the GREAT FAITH of the centurion, just as it is written in Matthew 8:10-11,
“10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.”
Because of GREAT FAITH, JESUS was AMAZED! Because of great faith, the servant of the centurion was healed! Because of great faith, many will come from the east and west and will feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of Heaven. Yes, GREAT FAITH in JESUS leads right into the FEAST OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. Such is the quality and REWARD for GREAT FAITH!
So if you have been doubting JESUS, let us renounce and reject that doubt! Let us ask THE LORD JESUS to give us THE SPIRIT OF GREAT FAITH. LET JESUS GIVE US THE FAITH OF THE CENTURION. Those who want, let us REPENT RIGHT AWAY and commune with JESUS.
Dear JESUS, MY LORD AND KING. Forgive my little faith. Forgive all my sin. LORD JESUS, come into my heart and be my LORD AND SAVIOUR. Fill me with the SPIRIT OF GREAT FAITH, THE HOLY SPIRIT that you promised us who believe in your name. Remove the spirit of doubt from me. Help me to stand firm on you JESUS, even if the storms of the world come beating against me. Help me to remain firm in GREAT FAITH, even if the whole world refuses to believe in you. Help me to overcome the temptations of satan. Help me to overcome sexual immorality. Help me to overcome the apostasy. Help me to overcome the trials of this world. Today, I receive you and I am born again in KING JESUS MIGHTY NAME. AMEN.
LORD JESUS, bless all who have repented with GREAT FAITH that we may all see the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in your KINGDOM. So be it, in KING JESUS MIGHTY NAME. AMEN.
P.s if you are not baptised, make sure to do so in full water immersion, the way John baptised the LORD JESUS.
