OUR THEME FOR 2018
(Part 23)

MOVING A MULBERRY TREE

November 13, 2017
Today’s gospel: Luke 17:1-6


Jesus makes an amazing statement. “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” (v.6).

To have faith is to know and follow Jesus, to trust in him, and to expect him to use you as his instrument. To have faith is also to know that you are destined for greatness. Indeed, if we are disciples of the King of kings, if we are empowered by his Spirit, if we are to do divine work, then that is greatness.

A mustard seed is a very small seed. Even if our faith is not yet that awesome, if we do accept the premises above, then God can already use us in greatness. Why? Because our work does not depend on our own capability but on God’s. We are mere instruments. God can accomplish His great works even using the humblest of instruments.

If a small faith can uproot a mulberry tree and plant it in the sea, think what a more expansive faith can accomplish. Then we can go through life not only believing in Jesus, but looking to the signs and wonders that he can work in and through us.

God may not be accomplishing much through you for now. It is not because He does not want to or does not intend to. It is because of our limited vision and small faith. It is because we are focused on our limitations rather than the unlimited power of God. It is because we just survive from day to day, rather than moving in expectant and mountain-moving faith.

Pray to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” (v.5). It starts with knowing that you are destined for greatness.
