Living by faith is a multi faceted endeavor. Trusting in the all-sufficient redeeming work of Christ is where we begin a life of faith. From there, the brilliance of this glorious reality is reflected and displayed in every area of our lives. Or at least it ought to. True faith, although indestructible, has the potential of increase or decrease, until perfected. Lack of faith is a denial of the sufficiency of Christ as Redeemer and Provider. It is distrust of who He is and His promises. When we distrust the spiritual realities promised to those in the faith, it will be revealed in our mundane earthly lives.
“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”(Hebrew 11:6)
No matter what the life situation, whether common or crisis, how we react to it is a testimony of how much faith we possess. Every moment is an opportunity for either growth or atrophy. When we doubt our salvation, do we take inventory of all our pious deeds with the hopes of merit? Or do we consider the redeeming work of Christ and His promises for assurance? Do you resort to worldly ways for position or advancement for fear of not getting what is ours? All that we do is a reflection of our faith, and that faith bears the name of Christ.
Bishop Jordan believe that even in the midst of the disciples’ unbelief, the Captain of their salvation was able to increase their faith with a rebuke to the wind and waves. Perfect faith would have let Christ sleep that night. Instead, He awoke with a stern rebuke for the disciples, “Where is your faith?” Christ is still in the midst of His people, and the question still stands.
