Building Your Faith (Jude 20-21)

Today’s scripture: Jude 20-21

Building up your faith, keeping it fresh is oh-so-important. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “stuff” of the world and not take the time to grow in faith.

And that which doesn’t grow does what? It either stagnates—or dies.

So, let’s take a moment to look at what these two verses say about how we can build our faith.

First, we’re to pray in the Holy Spirit. Do you spend time each and every day in prayer? Do you spend time in praise and confession, intercession and gratitude? If you want to build your faith, you need to.

Second, we’re to keep ourselves in the love of God. Do you realize how much God loves you? Have you read John 3:16 lately? He loves you more than you can even imagine. He loves you with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3). Live your life to bring honor to that love.

Finally, we’re to look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. But guess what, we don’t have to look very far. Christ gave us what we don’t deserve: eternal life with Him.

Build up your faith. Every day. Don’t let it stagnate, or even worse, die.

What do you do to build up your faith? To keep it strong? If you’re letting your faith stagnate, do something today—and every day—to keep it strong, starting with prayer.
