I have no faith, can you help me? Part 1

Yes, I can help you.

If you have no faith, there is only one possibility, that you did not receive Jesus; But if Christ is in your heart God had deposited the measure of faith in you, you can just develop what you have.

In Romans 12:3 says it clearly: "I say then, by the grace that has been given to me, to everyone who is among you who has no concept of higher than it should have, but who thinks of himself with sanity, according to the measure of faith that God distributed to each. "

So, as God distributed in you the measure of faith, now it's your turn to make it grow.

Now you could ask me: "But how can I do to make my faith grow?"

That is one of the easiest things: placing the word of God in your heart.

In Romans 10:17 says: "So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of God."

Another Bible transletion writes it this way: "So faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ."

God is not a God who makes things complicated, He has made things easy for us, if we do our part, he do His part.

The only thing we need to do is to put the word of God within us, on an ongoing basis; We hear it and hear it until it becomes a reality in us, that is until we believe in such a way that we act on it.
God told Joshua this way: "You never depart from your mouth this book of the law, but by day and night meditarás therein, to save and do according to all that is written in it; Because then you will prosper your way, and everything you will either. "

Then if we want to have faith the thing that what we have to do is put the word of God in us on an ongoing basis, in order to keep it and make it.

Do not say that you have no faith, you already have it, all you need to do is begin to make it grow.

How Can I Increase My Faith?

Here is an issue that has caused much debate for many centuries.

Some people have had preconceived and wrong ideas on these issue wanting to put all the responsibility on God.
They sing songs such as "Give me faith, Lord, give me faith"; But the fact is that God does not have them, nor will increase their faith.

They are wasting their time!

God was clearly established in the Bible the way that we can increase our faith.

The first thing to establish is that anyone who has been born again, God had gave him the faith; In Romans 12:3 says, "I say, then, by the grace that has been given to me, to everyone who is among you , which has no more high concept than it should have, but think of it wisely, according to the measure of faith that God distributed to each. "

By the time we receive Jesus, God divided the measure of faith on each of us, you and I now have the measure of faith in us.

This is very much in line with what it says in Ephesians 2:8-9: "For by grace you have been saved through faith; And this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; Not by works, so that no one can boast. "

Our salvation came through grace through faith, as the question is that God put this faith in us.

In Romans 10 reads:
Romans 10:8-17
8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we proclaim):
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and you believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.
11 For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him shall not be put to shame."
12 For there is no difference between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord of all is rich to all who call upon Him.
13 For "whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved."
14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear apart from a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, of those preaching the gospel of good things!"
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, "Lord, who has believed our report?"
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

In this passage Paul declares the process for us to increase our faith using as an example a man who is born again.

It summed up this way; To be born again we need to heard the word of God and respond to it; in other words, we respond to the faith that occurs when we heard the Word.

Faith comes by hearing the word of God, there is no other method, faith is not comes by praying, does not come by fasting or otherwise.

Faith comes solely by hearing the word of God.

The increase or our faith is our responsibility.

Without Faith it is Impossible to Please God

In Hebrews 11:6 says, "But without faith it is impossible to please God, for it is necessary for the one approaching God to believe that He is, and that He becomes a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him" (Apostles).

One of the most important themes of the Bible and that we find all over it is the faith.

And although it has been despised and attacked by some and by others overemphasized, however has a prominent place in the Bible.

So in this blog are going to teach about various points of the faith which will help us to understand and to walk in the victory that God prepared for us.
