Apst. Monty Abraham: The Force of Faith
Sub-topic: Grow Your Faith.
Bible Reference: 2Corinthians 10:15. “Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of men’s labour; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly.”
In the quoted Scripture, Apst. Paul hoped that their Faith will increased by the word of God they hear. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing the word of God, according to scripture. When you go for Sunday service, your faith is expected to increase. When you go for Bible Study, your faith is expected to increase.
When you attend prayer meeting, or counseling, your faith is expected to increase. Every opportunity to hear the word of God, is to increase your faith. If the word preached or taught is not increasing your faith, then that is another gospel. If it leaves you in fear or doubt, then it’s manipulation.
Importance of Faith
1. We are saved by faith: Romans 10:9, Eph 2:8. Everyone who is saved today is as a result of faith, because we receive salvation by faith.
2. We are Children of God by faith: John 1:12, Gal 3:26. You are a child of God because of the confession you made by faith. For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith.(Gal 3:26).
3. We live by faith: 2cor 5:17, Rom. 1:17. Your daily life in the realm of the spirit is depending on your faith. The Bible says, the Just shall live by faith.
4. We please God by faith: Hebrew 11:6. Without faith you can not please God. You need faith to do the things God likes.
5. We are blessed by Faith: Heb 11:1. When somebody is attacking your faith, the person is reducing your chances of being blessed. Blessings are obtained by faith.
6. We do spiritual warfare by faith: 2 Tim 4:7. The Bible says the weapon of our warfare are not carnal. That means they are spiritual. Faith is the shield you need to wade off the darts of the enemy.
Dont allow any sermon deplete your faith.
Keep declaring to yourself positive faith confessions.
I see your faith increasing in Jesus name.
