THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Two sisters were counting their pennies.
One said, "I have 5cents."
The other said, "No. We have 10cents each."
The first said, "But there are only 5 pennies in each
of our bags."
The other said, "But Daddy promised to give us
5cents when he comes home.
Therefore we each HAVE 10cents!"
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
LIGHT from the WORD.
The word "have" above is translated from the Greek
echo (ekh'-o), meaning: hold to, cling to.
The word "faith" above is translated from the Greek
pistis (pis'-tees), meaning: reliance upon, fidelity.
The word "have" is a verb -
indicating action in which to be involved.
The word "faith" is a noun -
indicating possession of something.
The message is simple:
cling to that which you own;
keep holding to your reliance upon God.
Christian, God has given you faith as a "seed."
Water it with prayer,
Cultivate it with Bible study,
Care for it with relationship in church,
Show it in evangelistic effort.
Be involved in your faith.
Then, you'll see it GROW!
