  TITLE: THE LOVE HASN'T DIED



  The Importance of Faith



  "I assure you, 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 God lift you up and throw you into the sea, and it will happen.  If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." -----Matthew 21:21-22



  Many have wondered about Jesus' statement that if we have faith and don't doubt, we can move mountains. Jesus of course, was not suggesting that his followers use prayer as "magic",to perform capricious mountain-moving acts.  Instead, he was making a strong point about the disciples (and our) lack of faith. What kinds of mountains do you face?  Have you talked to God about them? How strong is your faith?



   Have faith in God. I assure you that you can say to this mountain, 'May God lift you up and throw you into the sea,' and your command will be obeyed.  All that's required is that you really believe and do not doubt in your heart. Listen to me! You can pray for anything an believe, you will have it. But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too." Mark 11:22-25





  Jesus, our example, prayed,Everything is possible for you......Yet I want your will, not mine" (Mark 14:36). Our prayers are often motivated by our own interest and desires. We like to hear that we can have anything. But Jesus prayed with God's interest in mind. When we pray, we can express our desires,  but we should want His well above ours. Check to see if your prayers focus on your interest or God's.
