The primary goal of
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 for

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.
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.
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.

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