The Key to Greater Faith

Like the early apostles of Christ, I long for greater faith.
The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." ~Luke 17:5 HCSB
 In study a while back, I came across this verse: 
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. ~Romans 10:17 NIV
The Amplified bible often includes the phrase "firmly relying trust" when the word "faith" appears. I love that, in opening my heart and mind to what God has to say to me, through scripture, through the God-given words of those I love and trust, and most importantly through my own connection with the Divine, my faith . . . my firmly relying trust in God . . . grows.

Time to seek more of the Word. I'm so glad it's delicious to my soul. :o)

I welcome questions and concerns--they are most often what spur us closer to the truth. I only ask that we all give everyone the most generous benefit of the doubt, assigning the best motives possible. A soft answer truly does turn away wrath, and an atmosphere of Jesus's love is the best for learning, no matter which side of a discussion you're on.

Thanks so much, and God bless you!
