“The best measure of your faith is your obedience!” Do you agree or disagree with this statement? In what area(s) of your life are you presently struggling to show the “obedience of faith” (Rom. 1:5)?
How would you describe the relationship between earthly “success” and faith? What “results” can we expect if we exercise great faith? In what sense is faith always looking toward the future?
As you read through the roster of these faithful believers, whose faith impresses you the most? Who can you best relate to? Did the saints listed here always act obediently? Despite their faith, did they every wrestle with doubts?
Other than asking God to increase our faith (“I believe, help my unbelief!”), are there any steps we can take to grow our faith and trust in Jesus? Is it possible to have weak faith if we have a deep understanding of God’s love for us? Spend some time pondering Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21
