Mark chapter 11

Jesus teaches the *disciples to believe

Verses 20-25

Peter was very surprised when he saw this tree. On the day before, the tree was leafy and healthy (Mark 11:12-14). But Jesus said that it would die. And when Peter recognised the tree, it was completely dead. Peter did not think that Jesusí words would be so powerful.

Jesusí words were powerful because Jesus had Godís authority to speak those words. And God is very powerful. Jesus told the *disciples that they should always believe God. Even a mountain must obey Godís words. If a person believes God, God will do powerful things to help that person.

But a person who prays must do two things:

(1) He must continue to believe God. That person must not let other thoughts into his mind.

(2) He must *forgive other people. Then God will *forgive him too.

Next part: Jesusí authority
