Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
Would you like to grow weak? It’s not difficult, you know; all you have to do is stop eating and exercising. And yet no one in their right mind would willingly do this.
Why, then, do we fail to see the connection between the weakness of our faith and our lack of spiritual food and exercise? Faith doesn’t grow automatically; it requires exercise – the practice of seeing God work as we put our faith into action. If we don’t feed and exercise our soul, we shouldn’t be surprised when our faith grows weaker and weaker. But it doesn’t need to be this way – and it mustn’t be this way. Christ’s work is too important and too demanding for it to be carried out by spiritual weaklings.
What is the main food God has given to strengthen us? Is it the Bible, the Word of God. Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17). Read God’s Word. Study it. Meditate it. Listen to it preached and taught. And then watch your faith grow.
God Bless You All!
