What does Jesus observe about faith?

Two Instances of great faith
Matthew 8:6-10 NKJV;
Matthew 15:22-28 NKJV

Little Faith
Matthew 6:30;
Matthew 8:24-26;
Matthew 14:31;
Matthew 16:8-12
The Doctrine or of Pharisees and Sadducees

The leaven (doctrine) of the Pharisees is legalism
The leaven (doctrine) of the Sadducees is liberalism
Where does my faith stand?

Do you have shallow faith?
Do you have shattered faith?
Do you have fragile faith?

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for…

Hebrews 11:1-7
Genesis 5:24 – Enoch walked with God and was pleasing to God.
Genesis 6:9 – Noah walked with God and was pleasing to God
Hebrews 11:4 tells us that God was pleased with Abel’s sacrifice. Abel walked with God and was pleasing to God.
Hebrews 11:6

What constitutes faith, what is the substance of faith:

To come to God. The word cometh in the Greek implies to approach as a worshipper.
To believe that He is, not just that He can do.
To believe that He rewards those who diligently seek Him personally, not diligently seek what He can do for them.
