Christ tells us of the need to have a little child’s faith in order to receive the kingdom. This is the kind of faith where a child knows they are loved and can fully trust the ones taking care of them. This is an example Jesus uses on several occasions so it is clearly important…
Why should we persist in prayer? Oftentimes it seems that God is not listening. But that is never the case. As Jesus shows from this parable, God is always listening. Knowing this, we persist and by doing so, we are strengthened in our faith.
In His earthly ministry Jesus continually performed miraculous acts which were intended to point to His saving work and the work of the Holy Spirit who would come after Jesus ascended to Heaven. Like His disciples, many asked; “Who is this man?” The answer of course is “God”.
When we praise God for His specific acts of goodness we are strengthened in our fellowship, assured of His fidelity, reminded of His faithfulness and it makes our praise all the sweeter to Him. God loves our praises!!
