The BASIC Essential

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Mark 11:22

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.


Jesus and His disciples had entered Jerusalem at the beginning of His passion week. People were waving palm branches and were shouting, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” That night they stayed in Bethany, and the next morning on their way back to Jerusalem, Jesus saw a fig tree. Since he was hungry, He moved towards it, but there was no fruit. Upon seeing it, Jesus cursed the fig tree. The next day as they passed by, the disciples were shocked to see that the fig tree had dried up and died. When they mentioned it to Jesus, He simply said, “Have faith in God.”


For the “Follower Of Jesus,” FAITH is “The BASIC Essential” to everything we believe and every move we make. The scripture says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb. 11:6). Scripture also tells us that for the Believer, “Anything that is not of faith is sin” (Rom. 14:23). Our basic way of operation once we move from darkness into the light of our Savior’s salvation is by way of FAITH. Only my testimony can stop people from debating with me for very long as to whether or not God is real. Yet, Faith is “The BASIC Essential” to everything that we believe and do as followers of Jesus. There’s no way I can prove there is a God, but my life of Faith in time will win many over. Never give up on your FAITH!


Dear Jesus,

Once again, this AM I’m reaching out to You by FAITH! I know You’re there because You have never failed to hear or answer when I pray! Amen
