Today's Good News


01/25          Matthew 21:20-22

20 The disciples were amazed when they saw this and asked, “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” 21Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. 22 You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” 


Jesus said to have faith in Him.  When we focus our life on Him and develop real faith in Him we can pray for anything and if we have faith we will receive it.  The problem is that while things are going good that we can see we have faith but all too often when we can’t see the things we want to happen happening our faith quickly fades.  Jesus said have faith in Him and not just in the product we are seeking.  Have faith in Jesus.
