More Faith

TODAY’S VERSE
The apostles said to the Lord, “Show us how to increase our faith.”
Luke 17:5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are so many gadgets. So many software programs and if that isn’t enough there are apps for about everything. It seems that I have all I can handle just to learn the basics. I learn just enough to do what I have to do. What a surprise when I end up in a predicament only to find out that the software, app or gadget can solve my problem. It was there all the time, inherent in the tool but I did not take the time to learn about it. It is that way with our faith. When the disciples ask Jesus how to increase their faith, our inclination is to focus on the faith. As if we could whip up faith through some mental state. A certain tone of voice, body posture, heightened emotion and voila, a deeper faith. But the secret is not in the faith, it is in the object of our faith. Our faith increases as we know and experience God. As we hear the testimonies of others, as we read about the lives of faith others have lived. As we join others and begin to ask God for great and mighty things, our faith grows. It’s already there. Everything we need is in Him. Today, know Him, experience Him, believe Him. Your faith awaits.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, show me more of Yourself. I want a deeper knowledge and experience of You. Through this, I pray, increase my faith.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
