Weekly Reflection

Faith the Size of a Mustard Seed

10-02-2022We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 47, No. 3

Increase our faith” is a strange sort of request (Luke 17:5). Jesus had already told his disciples the parable of the mustard seed, so they already knew that size is deceptive. Now he tells them that even a tiny amount of faith is sufficient to command a mulberry tree—with its extensive root system– to uproot itself and plant itself in the sea. In other words: You want your faith to increase? Use it! Like a servant who becomes better at serving by regularly serving, whether in the field or in the home, a disciple grows in the Lord’s service by steadily serving the Lord. In his second letter, Paul asks Timothy to “bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that come from God” (2 Timothy 1:8). In other words, practice your faith, even when it’s difficult, and God will give you the strength you need. God gave Habakkuk the strength he needed when he despaired of the destruction and violence he saw around him. God showed him a vision of the world to come, assuring him that “the just one, because of [his or her] faith, shall live” (Habakkuk 2:4). If you want to increase your faith, act with justice amidst the strife, live out the gospel in the face of hardship, and serve the Lord always. This will suffice.

When has your faith been strengthened by acting upon it?

Fe del Tamaño de una Semilla de Mostaza

Auméntanos la fe” es un pedido extraño (Lucas 17:5). Jesús ya les había contado a sus discípulos la parábola del grano de mostaza, por lo que ya sabían que el tamaño engaña. Ahora les dice que incluso una pequeña cantidad de fe es suficiente para ordenar a una morera, con su extenso sistema de raíces, que se arranque de raíz y se plante en el mar. En otras palabras: ¿Quieres que tu fe aumente? ¡Úsala! Como un siervo que se vuelve mejor en el servicio sirviendo regularmente, ya sea en el campo o en el hogar, un discípulo crece en el servicio del Señor sirviendo al Señor constantemente. En su segunda carta, Pablo le pide a Timoteo que “comparta con el los sufrimientos por la predicación del Evangelio, sostenido por la fuerza de Dios” (2 Timoteo 1:8). En otras palabras, practica tu fe, incluso cuando sea difícil, y Dios te dará la fuerza que necesitas. Dios le dio a Habacuc la fuerza que necesitaba cuando se desesperaba por la destrucción y la violencia que veía a su alrededor. Dios le mostró una visión del mundo venidero, asegurándole que “el justo, a causa de [su] fe, vivirá” (Habacuc 2:4). Si quieres aumentar tu fe, actúa con justicia en medio de la contienda, vive el evangelio frente a las dificultades y sirve al Señor siempre. Esto será suficiente.

¿Quién es alguien a quien has pasado por alto y ahora te das cuenta de que debes responder con el amor y la compasión de Cristo?
