Today in Sunday school i taught about faith. It is through faith that we will begin to know that Jesus was no ordinary man. It is through faith that we begin to see the miracle of belief that develops in our lives when we just say 'show me, tell me'.
On the 4th day after the death of Lazarus, all his family, friends and church leaders mourned. It is only at this point that their friend Jesus comes and prays unto his Heavenly Father so all can hear it and then brings forth Lazarus from the sepulchre, wrapped in grave clothes. Even though Martha had great faith in and understood that Jesus was the Christ the Son of God she has a moment of doubt, however Jesus reassures her that all she needs to do is believe and she will see the Glory of God. (John 11) It was after this miracle that the Pharisees and the Romans began to believe that Jesus was threat and started to seek him out to destroy him. Why was this such a problem? After 3 days the Jews believe that the spirit as left the body and Jesus did what appeared to be the impossible. Jesus then goes into hiding but continues to teach.
If we have the faith of a mustard seed we will one day see the Glory of God. If we have faith we can see the Glory of God in everything around us. As i have learnt to walk by faith i have come to appreciate more the atonement and to accept more fully His Grace. But we must line upon line, precept upon precept until we know all things. (D&C 98:12; Moroni 10:5)
