When the Number Is Few

by Terry Wane Benton

We often show a lack of faith when we compare a small church to a large church. Some want to hide in a large crowd and they fail to grow spiritually. Jonathan had the right quality of faith.

Jonathan and his armorbearer attack the Philistines I Samuel 14:12-14

"Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, 'Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few'" (I Samuel 14:6).

A local church that is few in number just needs big faith in God. God can work through a small number. Just be sure you have Jonathan-size faith in God!
