Increase Our Faith

When the Son of Man comes,
will he find faith on the earth?
               —Luke 18:8

Jesus didn’t praise people for their education, their theatrical talent, their athletic ability, or their business acumen.

But he did praise people for their faith …

“I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith” (Matt. 8:10).
“Woman, you have great faith” (Matt. 15:28).
“Your faith has saved you; go in peace” (Lk. 7:50).

He was disappointed when his disciples’ faith faltered …

“You of little faith, why did you doubt?” (Matt. 14:31).
“Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mk. 4:40).

Absence of faith triggers his reproof; presence of faith his praise.

“Lord, increase our faith” (Lk. 17:5).

He likes it when you believe it
because he said it.
