Faith. It often seems like a mysterious power that either you have or you don’t. But in reality, those with a strong, mature faith are no different than the rest of us. They have simply learned this secret: the faith we possess is the direct result of the actions we choose to take. In this episode, we explore 3 specific actions we can choose to take to strengthen our faith today.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

  1. When you hear the word “faith”, what do you think of? Share an example or analogy to illustrate.
  2. Head over to openbible.info/topics/faith. Which passage(s) stands out to you? How do you think this relates to what Jon said about growing our faith?
  3. This week’s opportunity to grow in faith includes praying every morning, reading every day, and giving. Are there any barriers or resistance for you in these three actions? Why do you think that is? How can your group pray for you in growing your faith this week?
