#Motivation For Men #29: “Growing In #Faith”
Each stage of growth in our Christian faith requires different things from us.
As little children in the faith, we learn to embrace the truth of our forgiveness and to understand God as our Father.
As young men in the faith, we learn to embrace the truth of God’s word, as well as the strength and ability to overcome that God gives us.
As fathers in the faith, we come to know God in His eternal nature.
We never outgrow the truths we have learned earlier in the faith. Rather, the early truths prepare us for what lies ahead. When we are young men, we should never forget that God is our Father and He has forgiven us, for those truths help us overcome. When we are fathers, what we have learned as we progressed from childhood to young adulthood will give us an understanding of God that is difficult to gain any other way.
To continue to grow in the faith.
1. Do not forget that God is your Father.
2. Do not forget that you are forgiven.
3. Do not forget that you are strong, that the word of God abides in you, and that you have overcome the evil one.
Our God knows everything from the beginning to the end, and He will finish what He started in your life. Be strong and courageous!
