BE SPIRITUAL II; THE POWER OF FAITH

EPH 2:1-9
(1) And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins: (2) Wherein in
time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the
power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: (3) Among
whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the
desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as
others. (4) But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, (5)
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are
saved;) (6) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in
Christ Jesus: (7) That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his
grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (8) For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any
man should boast.

MATT 17:14
(14) And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man,
kneeling down to him, and saying, (15) Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is a lunatic,
and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. (16) And I
brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. (17) Then Jesus answered and
said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I
suffer you? bring him hither to me. (18) And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed
out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. (19) Then came the disciples to
Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? (20) And Jesus said unto them,
Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard
seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove;
and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
