Steps to Grow Your Faith

While salvation is a “free gift of God” (Rom. 6:23), growing in everyday faith requires discipline. Here are a few practices that will help you get to know God better and grow your faith:


1.  Read His Word. The apostle Paul encouraged Timothy to continue learning from the Scriptures, writing, “They have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work” (2 Tim. 3:15-16 NLT). God reveals Himself in the Word.


2.  Learn to pray. “Pray about everything,” Paul wrote to the Philippians. “Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6-7, NLT). Prayer is our connection to God.


3.  Listen for His voice. God speaks to us in many ways, but to hear Him, we must cultivate habits that help us listen, like setting aside time for devotions, meditating on Scripture, listening to Biblical teaching, and worshipping Him through “psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, … with gratitude in your hearts” (Col. 3:16). If we call on Him, He will answer (Jer. 33:3).


4.  Meet with fellow Christians. The writer of Hebrews admonished the early believers, “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together … but encouraging one another” (Heb. 10:24-25). Through fellowship with other believers, we learn and grow together: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Prov. 27:17).


5.  Step out in service. Jesus set an example for us by serving others. His ultimate act of service was sacrificing His life for us. He calls on us to serve others in His name (Matt. 25:34-40), which should be our natural outpouring of gratitude to Him. “Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works” (Jas. 2:26). We serve Him by serving others.


When you took your first step of faith toward God, you may not have known Him very well, but you knew enough to trust Him with your heart. As you get to know Him better, He will prove Himself trustworthy, and your faith in Him will grow.
