Day 80: Grow in Faith Til the Very End: Joshua 12 – 14 and I Corinthians 7.
Grow in Faith Til the Very End
Our readings today are Joshua 12 – 14 and I Corinthians 7.
Unbelief looks at the giants and backs away. Faith looks at the mountain, that is God, and says give me that mountain, give me God!
Caleb saw how big God was and the giants seemed small. Some of us have the gift of faith, like Caleb, yet we can all grow in, and cultivate, our faith, no matter how old we are. Paul says,
So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. (Rm 10:17)
We come to the Word, to become more like Caleb. That kind of faith comes from hearing the Word of God. God’s Word enables us to grow in faith and dependence on the Lord each day. And that faith will enable us to take the territory that God wants us to occupy in this life, now. We will be empowered to become bolder, more mindful of others, less consumed with ourselves, more sensible, more humorous, and stronger. Don’t let the years deplete your faith. Grow old like Caleb, growing in faith until the very end.
