The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63                                                                 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Matthew  24:35

   

The primary goal of "Jesus' Words for Everyone" is to bring attention to what Jesus says about many of our life issues and spiritual challenges. In His sermons, parables and teachings, Jesus addressed every circumstance, situation and event that is of importance to our physical and spiritual existence. Spiritually, He gave us Godís message for obtaining salvation and eternal life regardless of race, religion, gender and social status. But Jesusí words were also directed to our daily challenges and  human conditions such as marriage, war, death, forgiveness, divorce  and so much more.

Jesus' Words about Faith
*************
***************

Verily I say unto you, If you have faith, and doubt not, you shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if you shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
 
Matthew 21:2

If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree,' Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,' 
and it would obey you.  
Luke 26:34

And Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 
Mark 11:22-23

Who is Jesus

 

This web site was created to glorify God through the words of His Son, Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that as you read Jesus' words you would be spiritually enlightened, enriched, and encouraged. Additionally, we have included biblical and historical information about Jesus' early life and His ministry on earth.

Faith for Living 

 
Use of the word ďfaithĒ is often characterized as either an expression of positive thinking or adherence to a religious doctrine. But the bible tells us that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen Hebrew 11:1. This indicates that faith begins with believing for something that has not as yet materialized, but is sustained by  hope. Thus belief is really a catalyst for faith.  However, faith is not limited to our physical existence nor is it merely a mental activity or feeling. Faith has a spiritual dimension that is more powerful than what our senses observe. It is a dynamic force that God placed within our spirits. This is the reason that faith always prompts some type of action; spiritual, physical, or mental. Furthermore, Jesus teaches that God is the source of all faith - "Have faith in God" Mark 11:22, Thus faith is not activated by our intellect or emotions, but from within our spirits.

Based on biblical records it is evident that multitudes believed in Jesusí teaching. But it was their faith in His divine power to deliver them from sin, and to heal their diseases that drew them to Him. When a group of blind men approached Jesus for healing, He immediately heard their plea. But before delivering them from blindness, Jesus asked this question" Do you believe that I am able to do this? Matthew 9:28. Evidently, Jesus knew that once they believed, they would release their faith and receive their miracle of sight- Matthew 9:28-29. In another remarkable account of faith, a Roman centurion came to Jesus imploring Him to heal his ailing servant. Amazingly, the man stated that He believed that Jesus could heal the servant from a distance. Responding to the manís obvious faith, Jesus stated" I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel" Luke 7:9. The centurion clearly believed in Jesusí power, but it was  his faith Jesus said that healed the servant Ė Matthew 8:13. Similarly in the biblical account of the woman who had suffered for many years with a chronic blood disease, we read that she began her journey to healing by believing in Jesusí power to heal. Had she not believed, she would not have gone to see Him. But acting on her belief she went to Jesus and released her faith by touching the hem of His coat; and she was immediately healed -Matthew 9:20-22. 

Faith is a critical element in Godís plan of redemption. It is our faith in Jesus Christ that we release to accept Him as our savior. Likewise, it is by faith that we accept Godís forgiveness of our sins and His promise of eternal life Ė John 3:17. Faith is essential when we pray for anything; healing, protection or provision of our needs. Yet we must resist praying out of fear and anxiety, which will only diminish our faith. Prayers of desperation are often high on emotion but low on faith. Instead we must pray with confidence and faith in God's power. Our faith is the key that gives us access to God's  supernatural manifestation in our lives.  Jesus often told those He healed that it was their faith that made them whole Ė Matthew 9:22. He wants us to know that our faith in Godís power can ďmove mountainsĒ of trials and problems in our lives - Luke 26:34.  Jesus says ďWhat is impossible with man is possible with God" Luke 18:27. Faith in Godís word moves us beyond our human understanding to help us focus on what He has promised and not on the problem or adversity. Yet it is necessary to pray and meditate on Godís word, the bible as we wait on His answers. Many times waiting may seem long, but prayer with thanksgiving not only sustains our faith, it also strengthens us to reject doubts and fears. Plus as we trust God completely,  His peace fills our spirits. 

Remember...

  • God is the source of all expressions of faith

  • Belief is a key element of faith.

  • Fear, doubt and unbelief are hindrances to faith.

  • God made faith central to His plan of salvation

  • Faith and trust in God sustains us while we wait for His answer
