I want to have greater faith in Jesus. I want to be a more mature believer. I want to increase in faithfulness to Him.

How do I get there?

First of all, I must keep Jesus as the focus and purpose of my life:

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).

Then there’s this in today’s chapter:

“Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?” (James 2:22).

That is so neat!

How I live and what I do affect the development and maturity of my faith.

(Let me remember the downside to that — fleshly living affects my faith just as much as godly living.)

Surely you could add something...
