Today we will be talking about the next Fruit of The Spirit. This Fruit characteristic is faith. Why is this so important to have as a characteristic well because without it it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6) Faith is something that we all need in order to become better fathers, better Christians, better husbands, just down right better people in general.
I like to use this as my example for faith. I had faith that God will give me a house. I prayed and asked for God to give me one. Not only did it happen but it happened because I had faith that it would happen. However God had to show me that faith through prayer alone would not do what I was asking it was going to take more than that. It was going to take me putting my faith in to action. I had to realize just like the rest of the characteristic of the Fruit of The Spirit it takes action. I had to put my faith into motion and go out and trust that God was going to lead me to the right places and right organizations to purchase my house through. The faith that we need is definitely expressed in Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen”. We as men have to be prepared to tap into our faith. Scripture tells us that we just need a small amount of faith the size of a mustard seed and we will be able to move mountains.
So after you read this article on faith I want you to pray about how your faith can be increased. Once you have found what it will take to increase your faith do the work that it will take for it to happen in your life and start right away.
Yours In Christ,
