Summary: We must grow in faith for our Lord.
FAITH AND UNBELIEF
Luke 17: 5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
Romans 10: 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 14: 23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Galatians 5: 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
Hebrews 11: 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
James 2: 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
1. Peter sinking.
Matthew 14: 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
2. The disciples powerless.
Matthew 17: 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
3. The disciples in the storm.
Mark 4: 37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
