Bible insights from your friends at La Jolla Lutheran Church


God's possiblities will stretch your faith.

Jesus raised three people from the dead: the son of a widow in Luke 7, a daughter in Luke 8, and his friend Lazarus in John 11. Any one of those would be astounding enough.

But then in Matthew 10:7-8 Jesus tells his disciples he expects them to raise the dead also.

Most of us need more practice.

When we face a situation that others say is impossible, will we trust them? Or will we trust the Bible, when it says that all things are possible with God?

We never know what God will do in impossible situations until someone tries.

Reflection question

What impossible situations do you have hope for?

 

God, help us to have faith to do the amazing things you call us to do. Thank you. We praise you. Amen.
