To my Sisters in Arms, regularly attending church is one of the best times and places to study about faith and grow our ferocious faith in God! Find out why we should always go to church services!
What is the purpose of the church?
The church is to teach biblical doctrine so we can be grounded in our faith. Ephesians 4:14 tells us, “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.” The church is to be a place of fellowship, where Christians can be devoted to one another and honor one another (Romans 12:10), instruct one another (Romans 15:14), be kind and compassionate to one another (Ephesians 4:32), encourage one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11), and most importantly, love one another (1 John 3:11).
Matthew 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible. (NLT)
When I think of ferocious faith, I think of great faith in God and in all, He has promised to do for His children who love and obey Him. I want to go above and beyond the faith God has given us to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. I want us to stand firm on His word and encourage others to do the same. Two passages come to mind as I consider standing unmovable and unshakable on God’s word by faith.
Ephesians 6:11 New Living Translation (NLT)
11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
1 Corinthians 15:58 New Living Translation (NLT)
58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
Many Christians are taking tests to assess their spiritual gifts, and I have done so on several occasions. I believe in walking boldly and with confidence in God, and I want to encourage all to do the same. We must use our gift(s) wisely. Let’s also look at what Got Questions Ministries has to say about not saving faith but the spiritual gift of faith.
I would love it if our ferocious faith mimicked this extraordinary gift from God!
Here is the short answer to the definition of the spiritual gift of faith! To read the entire article, follow the link below.
Question: “What is the spiritual gift of faith?”
Answer: The spiritual gift of faith is found in the list of the gifts of the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 12. Verse 9 says that some people are given the gift of faith, but the gift is not specifically explained. All believers have been given saving faith by God as the only means of salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9), but not all believers are given the spiritual gift of faith. Like all the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the spiritual gift of faith was given for the “common good,” which means the edifying of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:7). The gift of faith may be defined as the special gift whereby the Spirit provides Christians with extraordinary confidence in God’s promises, power, and presence so they can take heroic stands for the future of God’s work in the church.
