How much faith?

There is a simple equation we need to understand:

The background:

We are indeed privileged!

We heard the Good News (Gospel) of the unlimited love of Abba Abba and His unmerited favour (Grace).

We have received this Grace and made it our own and He now abides in us - Grace upon Grace!

We are build up constantly by His Spirit of Truth in our most Holy Faith through His Word.

Our position truely is  admirable and glorious in the extreme.

Now the Formula

Heb 4:2 "For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it."

Hebrews here points out the error of the Jewish pharisees, scribes  and religious leaders. They heard the glad and joyous tidings given to them concerning Salvation and the Grace of God (Jesus). They even stared Him in the face, He even spoke in their midst (Emanuel). Yet, much like people today, it did not profit them because they could not associate and connect (bring together, unite and pour out) this Good Tiding in faith to their own benefit.

Behold and see

... but to us this is fully possible!

... how?

Let's look at the ingredients

"How much faith is necessary?" you should ask.

The Word (Jesus) Himself answers this question: "And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you." Luk 17:6

Let's work on the main Ingredient in the equation:

Me (having trusting in Jesus - own faith) mixed with even more of Him (Jesus, Faith Himself) = profit (all we need, undeserved favour - Jesus)

Translated

You need to mix a very very small portion of faith (your choice and acceptance of Jesus) with the Word (Jesus, the Greatest Portion: God's Best, the One Who existed from the foundation of creation, the One Who is and was and always will be, the Fullness of God -Jesus) to arrive at an awesome result of profiting ALL blessings!

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:" Eph 1:3

Jesus = All in all

Amen!
