Would you like to grow weak? It’s not difficult, you know; all you have to do is stop eating and exercising. And yet no one in their right mind would willingly do this.
Why, then, do we fail to see the connection between the weakness of our faith and our lack of spiritual food and exercise? Faith doesn’t grow automatically; it requires spiritual “food” for its nourishment. It also requires exercise – seeing God work as we put it into action. And if we don’t feed and exercise our souls, we shouldn’t be surprised when our faith grows weaker and weaker.
Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.
