What kind of faith do you have?

Jesus asked a probing and straight forward question. When He comes again, will he find this kind of faith on the earth? What kind? The kind that always prays and never acts badly in difficult circumstances. The kind that does not become weary, or tired of doing the work of the kingdom. The kind that holds out successfully. The kind that does not give up, does not become discouraged and does not lose heart!

So pastor, the question to you on this May morning is this -‘What kind of faith do you have’? Peter, writing in the midst of some profoundly difficult circumstances, tells us that we have been birthed into a ‘living hope’. The application is this pastor. God will use YOU as His instrument to bring Transformation to the ministry in which you serve. Are you willing to surrender and do what is required to see Transformation birthed where you serve, or, are you SKEPTICAL?

“Beware in your prayers, above everything else, of limiting God, not only by unbelief, but by fancying that you know what He can do. Expect unexpected things ‘above all that we ask or think –Andrew Murray

“To the man who prays habitually (not only when he feels like it-that is one of the snares of religion-but also when he does not feel like it) Christ is sure to make Himself real.” –James Stewart

How would you rate your “Persistent Prayer” quotient on a scale of 0 — 10?

    Hi Tom,

    Stay with the good stuff Tom! I appreciate so much your focused passion to see transformation in the church today. Enjoyed reading your blogs this evening. You’ve always challenged me as a fellow pastor to think outside the box and you remain a true friend.

    Thank you
