Series: Lent: The Power of the Gospel
Speaker: Jason Guynes
Passage: Matthew 17:14-20 (NIV)
Description: In this story Jesus exorcises a demon from a young boy. One which the Disciples were unable to drive out. As a result, Jesus reprimands them for their failure to trust the One to whom they ought to be praying, but don’t. It would seem they may act in religious ways, but their faith was not placed rightly in prayer - theirs was demonstrated in the reliance of self. But prayer in relationship with Jesus demonstrates a relationship of practical trust in His power to accomplish more than we might ever imagine.
