Something occurred to me today. We often look to “leaders” to tell us what it takes to grow our faith – pastors, speakers, authors, missionaries. But the Christian life is a personal journey, and I sometimes think we look too much to others to tell us what “growing in our faith” really means.
If I’ve learned anything from serving as a missionary in the Philippines, it’s that I’m lucky to have some of the kindest, most generous, and most genuine people in my life.
Now that you know you're appreciated and an important part of my life, I’d love to hear from you. With your input this could become an awesome resource of stories, testimonies, and even sermon illustrations.
In turn, I’d love to do whatever I can to help you. I admit I’m not always sure what that is, but I’d love to know! Whether it’s to pray, teach you more about missions, introduce you to a friend, encourage you – I want to extend a show of thanks to you.
Here’s the question: what’s the most effective thing you’ve done to grow your faith this year?
Feel free to talk about more than one, or just pick one. In any case, let’s hear it! I can’t wait to read your responses. And please don’t feel like you have to write a lengthy response. For some it might be as simple as “Listening to an audio Bible every morning on the way to work” or “Being more patient, empathetic, and Christ-like to those around me.”
If you have a longer story, by all means please share that as well. I’d just love to hear from you, and (if I’m honest) I think it would be so encouraging to me personally to hear your journey.
Here we go! Let’s hear your best answer! Thanks in advance for participating!
