What we're talking about
In the gospels we read about all these miraculous things that Jesus was able to do during his ministry; healing the sick, making the blind see, making the paralyzed walk, feeding thousands of people with simple bread and fish. But these miracles don't just stop with Jesus; Jesus sends out his disciples telling them to do the same. When they return to Jesus having failed to heal someone Jesus grows frustrated and tells us that if we had a faith the size of a mustard seed we could move a mountain. A little faith goes a long way.
