Lord, Increase Our Faith
“He who is faithful in what is least, is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is also unjust in much.” – Luke 16:10
Hi readers! Your constant show of love and support produce more gratitude than I can truly express. Thank-you for reading! I appreciate you!
I’m also so grateful for the faith that I have in the Lord. It’s what sustains me. God is so good to me. He’s the Alpha. He does not come in second at all. My heart was his from the start. And being close to the Lord helps me to wake and get out of bed each new day. It is my hope that you will come to know the very same Jesus who lights up my life, especially when it is riddled with darkness.
Faith is important to the Lord. Many times when He walked the earth, He made mention of the faith of the people with whom He came into contact. Remember when Mary anointed Jesus with oil and washed His feet with her tears and dried them with her hair? Jesus told her, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace” (Luke 7:50).
Jesus said something similar to the blind man to whom He gave sight: “Go your way. Your faith has made you well” (Mark 10:52). He often even marveled at people’s faith (Mat. 8:10; 15:28). Faith in Him makes men strong (Acts 3:16). And Jesus prayed specifically for Peter that his faith would not fail (Luke 22: 32).
It’s unmistakable. Without faith, it’s impossible to please the Lord (Heb. 11:6). It is the righteousness of God that is revealed from faith to faith, and the just live by faith (Rom. 1:17). Jesus said, “if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins” (John 8:24). Having faith in the Lord is critical.
I have come to believe and know Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God (John 6:69). Will you recognize the urgency and the need to have faith in the Lord? He’s standing at the door of your heart waiting to enter. It’s not about just saying “Lord, Lord” or calling out “But God!” or other silly stuff like that. It’s about having a genuine and sincere desire to serve Jesus as Lord of your life.
Are you willing to do that – to obey the Lord? If so, today is a better time than ever to give your life in obedience to Christ. Obey the gospel today, start living right, and confess that Jesus is Lord. Then be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins. If you have faith, you’ll honor Him by your obedience to His will.
May we always recognize the importance of our faith in the Lord, never let it fail, and pray, “Lord, increase our faith!” (Luke 17:5).
