Faith is key to the successful Christian life. How can we have more faith?
Here are 3 ideas that can help you.
- Begin with Jesus. Jesus Christ is "author and finisher of our faith." Every good thing in the Christian life comes from God, so even our faith must have its source in Him. Ask Jesus to help you build your faith.
- Focus on the Bible -- God's truth. "Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." Make a deliberate decision to trust in God and in His Word, and He will never disappoint you.
- Be thankful for God's blessings. Recount the many times God has helped you already in your life. Our human tendency is to fear and doubt the future; instead, thank God by faith for His blessings in the future, and call to mind His many blessings and His faithfulness in the past.
