Matthew 9:18-22, Matthew 14:22-33, Hebrews 11:6

If you’ve read The New Testament, then you know faith is important.  Early on in Matthew, a lady who had a bleeding condition for years touched Jesus’ cloak.  He was pleased with her faith and she was healed.  About midway through Matthew, Peter tried to walk on the water to Jesus, but he didn’t get very far before he was scared and started sinking.  Jesus seemed irritated that Peter’s faith was lacking.  He asked him why he doubted.

There are many more examples of faith in the Bible.  Faith is important but it’s more than that.  In Hebrews 11:6 we learn that without faith it’s impossible to please God.  Let’s please God by having faith.
