A Measure of Faith

Everyone has faith in something.
We have faith the sun will rise and set daily.
Faith the floor will be there as we set our feet upon it.
These are constants.

The faith put in jobs, cars, friends, family and ourselves is not.
This type of faith can fail.

But when we come to Christ we are given a “measure of faith”.

Romans 12:3
For I say, through the grace given to me,
to everyone who is among you,
not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think,
but to think soberly,
as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

An everlasting faith in God, Who will never fail.
It is a gift that grows.
Every Christian is given the same amount of faith
and every time we tap into faith by
leaning on, trusting in, and obeying God faith magnifies.

II Thessalonians 1:3
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren,
as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly,
and the love of of everyone of you all abound toward each other….

The power source of faith is the word of God.
Just as water is a power source for electricity.
Without water–no power.
Without God’s word–little faith.

Romans 10:17
So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

The more of God’s word the greater the faith.
Faith is planted in our spirit and as we water it with the Word
it flourishes and is nurtured by the Holy Spirit.

Water your measure of faith today with the Word of God.
