Faith That Feeds on Crumbs

I’ve been a student of faith for many years, and I still consider myself in the first grade of faith. There’s so much more I need to know. But I have learned three things about faith. First, without faith it is impossible to please God. Second, God always rewards our faith. And third, God always tests our faith.


Dogging Jesus for a Miracle

Are you a persistent person or do you give up quickly? Jesus taught us, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7) But those verbs denote continuous action. He literally said, “Ask and keep on asking … seek and keep on seeking … knock and keep on knocking.” You wouldn’t walk up to a closed door and knock once would you? Have you been praying for something for days or weeks and you haven’t received an answer yet? Don’t quit praying. God rewards persistent praying. Don’t give up. Keep praying.


The Parable of Stones and Snakes

The Golden Rule is greatly misunderstood in our world. Some people think it’s a formula for getting into heaven. Ask some people if they’re going to heaven and they say, “Well, I try to treat others the way I want to be treated.” This isn’t a formula for salvation. It’s a description of how God’s children will act like our heavenly Dad by showing them the same kindness that He has shown us.
