Where did we go wrong?



Screen Shot 2020-06-05 at 11.21.00 AM (4)“Your people could not do the job” the man complained to the leader.

Frustrated with the incompetence of his followers, despite the extensive training, the master reprimands them ‘faithless’ and ‘perverse’.

This incident is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, where a man pleads for Jesus to have mercy and heal his son, suffering from epileptic seizures. He had earlier taken the boy to the disciples, but they were not able to help.

Later, the disciples approach Jesus to find out where did they go wrong.  Jesus explains the reason in simple words – because your faith is little!

While the disciples are wondering how much faith is needed to see a miracle, Jesus says “faith that is the size of a mustard seed” Which means, the disciples did not have even that much of faith?  And that too despite Jesus’ repeated teaching and urging to walk into the miraculous.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
