Faith is a gift from God. And like so many other gifts of God, we have a responsibility to appropriate it and grow in it. So how do we grow in faith? The key is to grow in the object of our faith, namely Jesus Christ. Faith is only as good as its object. You can have the strongest faith in a rickety bridge and have it collapse under your weight in spite of your strong faith. Or you can have a weak faith in a strong bridge and it will hold you up along with a semi truck that rumbles along beside you. The right way to have a strong faith is to know the engineer who built the bridge. You knowledge of the bridge and its builder would increase your faith in the bridges ability to hold you up, even though it may go over a frightening chasm below. The bridge, not your faith in the bridge, gets the glory.
Join us this week as we see why the shield of faith is the ultimate weapon in the armor of God. And may our Father increase our faith for the glory of His Son.
