I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"HAVING FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
HAVING FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD SOMEONE SAY THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY FAITH? WELL, THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. WE ALL HAVE FAITH. IN FACT, GOD HAS GIVEN ALL OF US THE SAME AMOUNT OF FAITH. THE PROBLEM IS THAT SOME PEOPLE DON'T EXERCISE THEIR FAITH ENOUGH TO KEEP IT STRONG. HOW CAN I SAY THAT WE ALL HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT OF FAITH? I DIDN'T SAY IT, PAUL SAID IT IN ROMANS 12:3 "For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith." IT DOESN'T SAY "A" MEASURE OF FAITH, WHICH COULD BE ANY AMOUNT. IT SAYS "THE" MEASURE OF FAITH, MEANING THAT WE ALL GOT THE SAME.
I WILL HAVE TO ADMIT THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVE GREATER FAITH THAN OTHERS ONLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE BUILT UP THEIR FAITH. THEY HAVE TAKEN GOD AT HIS WORD AND HAVE REACHED OUT, BY FAITH, AND HAVE DONE GREAT WORKS. DO YOU KNOW HOW TO BUILD YOUR FAITH? THE BIBLE SAYS IN ROMANS 10:17 "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." ALTHOUGH WE ALL HAVE FAITH, SOME NEVER USE IT TO HAVE FAITH IN ANYTHING, ESPECIALLY GOD. DID YOU KNOW THAT NOT USING YOUR FAITH AND NOT HAVING FAITH IN GOD IS NOT PLEASING HIM. THAT IS WHAT IT SAYS IN HEBREWS 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." IF YOU REALLY WANT TO UNDERSTAND FAITH, READ THE COMPLETE CHAPTER OF HEBREWS 11. IT WILL TAKE YOU LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES BUT YOU WILL GET SO MUCH OUT OF IT AND IT WILL BUILD YOUR FAITH.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
