The fourth key idea from last Sunday’s message, “Called to Faith,” is:
True disciples of Jesus believe what Jesus teaches and obey what Jesus commands, and when they see that they fall short of Jesus’ teaching, they seek to learn and grow with the help of the Lord. Because Jesus commands us to have faith that our prayers will be answered, true disciples will not be satisfied with little faith but will seek always to obey the Lord by having strong faith. True disciples of Jesus seek to have strong faith in everything. For true disciples, strong faith is not optional but rather is a matter of obedience to Jesus.
