During Battle Drill devotionals this week, Paul reminds us we are saved by God through faith alone. In what ways can we strengthen our faith?
Read Romans 4:1-4; 15-17. Are you a worrier? If you are, then when you hear that we are saved by God through faith alone, you probably start to worry. Do I have enough faith? Is my faith strong enough the save me?
If you do, then I’m afraid you miss the point. Faith is not about us. It is not about our efforts. It doesn’t matter how powerful our faith is. It is Jesus Christ who saves us. He does not rely on our feelings or even our actions. He is strong enough to save us no matter how weak our faith might be.
Our salvation is a gift from God. He gives it to us because he loves us. We cannot earn it. Our own efforts will never be enough. So, what do we do:
Hebrews 11:1 NLT
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
Faith is to look for that for which we hope. It is to trust in Jesus for the things we cannot see. All we can do is reach out to accept the wonderful gift of salvation he longs to give to us.
Think It Over
Think about the following:
• How can you show your faith in God today, even when you can’t see what the future holds?
