He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you. “Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? Won’t he rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink’? So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.’ ” (Luke 17:6‭-‬8‭, ‬10, NIV).


Doing what is our expected duty according to God's Word is fairly straightforward. Obedience is connected to faith. Faith is not so much an unseen spiritual force driven by what a person believes but action based clearly upon the commands found in the Bible.


How much faith do I have? The best way to find the answer is asking how faithful I am in obeying God's Word.


May we be full of faith as we are obedient to the Word.
