Bible Helps has published a new article, entitled “Enduring Faith,” by Luther Patches.

Faith the Size of a Mustard Seed
“Lord, Increase our faith.” The disciples once asked Jesus this question. He replied, “If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you” (Luke 17:6). On another occasion Jesus […]
Faith Changes Everything
Faith changes everything. I do not mean that faith in God always changes our circumstances. But faith changes our entire outlook on life so that everything looks different.

Praying from Prison

The world seems like it’s falling apart from COVID-19, racial tensions, and senseless violence. ‘As in the days of Noah’…right.” These words came from a recent letter sent by a friend in prison.
