Lack of Faith

One passage in the Gospel says that Jesus "was amazed" by the lack of faith of the people who witnessed his miracles and listened to his teaching. They had seen and experienced him, and yet they lacked faith. We should be easy on ourselves if we, too, sometimes lack faith. Yet, as we move along on the journey to following Jesus more closely. we can reinvigorate our faith by looking at all the beauty in God's creation and by reminding ourselves that the resurrection account can be nothing but true. So all things are possible for God who does exist. Having faith in the God of creation and resurrection should give us hope that the humanly impossible is totally possible with God.
