How do people maintain a growing faith?
Experience what God is like. It will grow your faith.
6 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:6-7
Growing your faith is a process.
People sometimes ask me how they can increase their faith.
After the death of her brother, Martha’s faith was floundering, so she talks to Jesus, and she’s fishing for certainty in knowledge. Jesus doesn’t give her what she’s asking for, instead, invites her into an experience, a relationship with him.
Strategies on Growing Faith
There are two popular strategies that people use for growing their faith.
One of them is all about doing things. The other one is all about knowing stuff.
When people asked Jesus for more information so that they could believe, he never answered them with more knowledge to acquire all things to do. He simply invited them into a deeper, personal experience with him.
You don’t get to know your partner by doing more housework for him or her by doing book research, do you?
Remember the ultimate answer to how to grow your faith is to experience what God is like.
