Of course, there is a point where you say, “I can’t just be believer, my faith is deeper than that.” It is at that point where you’ve made profound progress.
Matthew 17:20, “20He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.””
This deeper faith is the begining of something wonderful. It’s not something you wear on the outside or sinks in just a little, it begins it’s transformation where the other two could never touch: your heart.
Your heart, emotions, courage, essence, character, foundation of belief and action, core, it’s what moves you, makes you, well you, and it’s what God wants most.
Romans 12:3, “3For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.”
Each of us have a different measure of faith, that, at one point, had been small. Then it grew over time because of our expeciences as we learned to give our whole heart to God. Our hearts are the source of everything good God make it for, but it was first put to use for all sorts evil. Only once God has the whole thing can he cleanse it and it put it for the good use it was intended for. Keeping even a little bit of it back will only create a foothold for its evil uses to spread back through the whole heart.
So tell me, is your faith on the surface, just skin-deep, or cutting to the core?
