On Christmas and today I finished reading the book of Matthew. But today I write with only a question. It is something I have thought about before but have never come to a clear consensus with my own thoughts on.
Here is the scripture that I have been thinking over since early Christmas morning.
In the morning, as Jesus was returning to Jerusalem, he was hungry, and he noticed a fig tree beside the road. He went over to see if there were any figs, but there were only leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” And immediately the fig tree withered up. The disciples were amazed when they saw this and asked, “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?” Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, `May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”
Why do we not see Christians performing miraculous things today? Do we not have real faith? Do we simply doubt?
If you have thoughts please chime in.
