Hur mycket väger din tro?

Do you ever think about how huge the word faith is? Imagine if you where told to pick up your faith and measure it on a weighing scale. Would you be happy with how much it weighs? Would you be satisfied? 

I do this every single time I go to church and have to believe that during the time of communion, I will see both the body and blood of Jesus in the bread and wine. I look up at the priest while he blesses the bread and wine, and deep in my heart see only the body and blood of the Son of God! That my dear brothers and sisters needs a lot of faith. The kind of faith our great grandfather Abraham exhibited when he was asked to sacrifice his son Isaac. The same faith that Daniel showed when his enemies casted him into the lion pit. Faith is to me the biggest and the most difficult essence in all humanity as it challenges everything that makes us human. The fact that people like Thomas could not believe that Jesus had risen from the dead tells you how difficult it is to have faith. In fact, Thomas went ahead to say that he could only believe if he could place his fingers in the wounds of Jesus. Thats how hard it is to believe until you see. I therefore employ all of you my dear friends not to wait for miracles to happen in your life before you actually feel like you believe in them. 

Faith in my Lord has really given me purpose in life because I have learnt to know that someone sacrificed himself for me and thus know that I have to use my faith in Him to spread his love to all my brethren. Jesus said: "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done." Matt 21:21.

So let's try to follow what He told us, have faith! Amen.
