Sharing Your Faith

Many Scriptures from the Bible can be used to describe our faith. As we grow and mature in our faith, we need to share and pass on our faith with others to help bring people to Christ. Once we have faith, we need to do something with it? The gift of faith is a prerequisite to living a committed life and obeying our Lord and Savior. It all begins in the mind.

Faith by the Holy Spirit will guide us to develop God-pleasing works. Taking up our cross has to be a daily matter. To be a true servant of God takes genuine humility. Christians seek to please God, because of their faith driving their works.

As mentioned in the book of James; “So also faith by itself, if he does not have works, is dead” (James 2:17).

Living differently begins with thinking differently. The right attitude choice can transform our circumstance, no matter how dismal it may appear. People don’t live pure lives because of warnings and threats. The right attitude must come from the heart as a result of the right choices.

The Bible is the Christian’s guide. It is God’s inspired Word without error. The principles that govern a Christian are derived from the Scriptures. The Bible is our foundation for teaching what true faith to others really is. When we practice the principles of God’s will, we see our Savior in action. God becomes real through works of love.

When helping others to better grow in their faith, we can see God’s point of love to the cross. The love of Christ is brought out to show others how we grow daily in our faith as disciples for Christ. As teachers and leaders, we are to build up Christ by showing His examples put before us.

We can help people grow in their faith by helping others to develop accountability. As we teach others how to be accountable to their Christian faith, we can bond and grow together in our love for Christ.

We have been saved by faith through Christ Jesus, our Lord, and no one can boast, about what they have done.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9).

As we humbly teach others how to truly confess and repent daily, we can teach them the power of Christ and how our faith will mature and grow daily in coming closer to Jesus. Because of God’s great love for us, he has made us alive in Christ Jesus. The death of sin no longer overpowers us.

As we continue to grow in our faith, we can learn the power of sanctification. “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).

It is the power of God, for everyone who believes, to drive our faith to do good works and to be obedient and follow our Lord and Savior. Scripture again reminds us that there is nothing we can do to save ourselves. As we teach and lead others to Christ, we dare never to stop speaking about Jesus and the cross.

Understanding what faith is can be complicated, yet it can be a simple concept to understand. But the real message to convey is to properly introduce it and help others to know the path to follow to make it grow.

The book of Proverbs says; “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

A day is coming when we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, and everyone needs to account for what they have done, whether it be good or bad.

Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment (John 5:28-29).

As we understand this message from our Lord, as Christian disciples, we have much work to be done as a faith builder for others to come to Christ. For all of us, our faith building is important when facing all eternity forever and ever!

May God bless you as you continue to grow in your faith.
