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.)
