But Jesus said, “If you had the faith of a mustard seed, that’s all it takes.” And some of us have had that mustard seed faith and we’re like that man who had flown that plane one or two times. And we put our mustard seed faith in the right object—Jesus Christ. And we’ve made it from San Diego to Dallas Fort Worth.
Some of us are like that woman. We have about that much faith and we put our faith in the right object, Jesus Christ, and he’s taking us from San Diego to DFW, too. We got there, too.
Some of us here have frequent flyer faith. I mean, we’ve flown a lot. We have hundreds and hundreds of thousands of miles under our belts. And turbulence doesn’t bother us. We still get from San Diego to DFW.
We all have different amounts of faith; yet, we get where we need to go if we trust in the right object. All of those three passengers put their faith in the right object, this 737. And it got them where they needed to go. But I will tell you, Mr. Frequent Flyer had the most enjoyable flight. Why? Because he put his faith and trust in planes all over the world.
So when you’re in doubt; when you’re suspended between belief and non-belief; when you’re in two minds, don’t just stand there.
You know, it’s kind of like my father. I used to go to football games with my father, and Dad loves to yell at the referees. He doesn’t cuss at them; he’s just very competitive. And here’s what he would say to the referee’s, “Move around! You’re killing the grass!”
As a little kid, I was thinking, “What’s he talking about?” And the ref would look up like, “Isn’t that that pastor in a local church?” I’d sit there with that “He’s not my dad” look.
