What Kind of Faith Does Jesus Look For?

Standard

“Jesus does not trust the kind of faith that comes from seeing miraculous signs. It is not difficult to imagine why. Such faith is likely to be a fair-weather faith. It will believe when signs are performed, prayers are answered, thing are going well. But it is not the sort of faith that will survive the loss of a child, a period of illness, or some other trauma. Persevering faith comes through the word of God.”
