Resurrection Post-Script

Just a few thoughts I wanted to tack on to the end of my Easter series, Resurrection is Go!

What's Your Faith In?
You’ve all heard Jesus’ saying about having the faith of a mustard seed:

I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20

What does that actually mean, and what does it have to do with the Resurrection?

Faith, you see, depends not on how much of it you can muster up. As Eugene Peterson says, “You don't need more faith. There is no 'more' or 'less' in faith.”

Faith is not a matter of degree or quantity; it is a question of object.
