22. Jesus replied to them, “Have faith in God.

23. I assure you:  if  anyone  says  to  this mountain,  ‘Be  lifted  up  and  thrown  into  the sea,’  and  does  not  doubt  in  his heart,  but believes that what he said will happen,  it will be done for him.

24. Therefore,  I tell you, all the things you pray and ask for  –  believe that you have received them, and you will have them.”                                Mark 11:22-24

 

This is an exceedingly amazing – and exceeding difficult – -“if you will, then I will” promise from our Lord Jesus.

 

If we want to see our subsequent prayers answered, our initial prayer should be, “Lord, increase my faith!”

 

Find the time, and find a way,  TO read “red letters” every day!

 

This past Sunday,  I mentioned a past practice that I have taken up again this year: reading a chapter from the Gospels every day.

 

Matthew,  Mark,  Luke,  and John  have 39 chapters.  If you read one chapter every day, you’ll read the Gospels four tomes a year.

 

Each one has either “red letters,”  the words of our Savior,  or  a  narrative about His life.

 

Reading “red letters”  every day,  in addition to your regular reading plan,  will result in increased faith and obedience.

 

EXPECT  lives  to  be  changed  when  we  faithfully  worship  and  witness  as  Jesus’  church!

Our Lord’s servant, Bro. Terrell
