Building Your Faith
Word of the Day: Exercise
Building Faith in 3 Stages
The Big Idea: God has given you the blueprint and the tools you need to build a strong faith—the kind of faith that changes your family tree, turns weakness into strength, and echoes into eternity.
The Definition: Faith is “Trust in Motion”
What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone?
The Premise: Only through faith do we experience the reality of the unseen God.
By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.
Habit #1: Choosing sides in response to God’s warning.
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.
Habit #2: Choosing God’s adventure over human fear.
By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.”
Habit #3: Choosing to unconditionally surrender to God’s Plan.
