Read the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, five days a week

Day 17/260: Read Luke 17

The apostles said to Jesus, “Increase our faith.” What a noble and honorable request! In humility, they admitted their need for a stronger faith.

Where does faith come from? Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Elsewhere, we are told that faith is needed to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Thus, if we neglect His Word, in effect abandoning our faith, we cannot please Him.

We are so blessed in this day and age to have immediate access to the Bible. I have several different translations on my bookshelf, but I can also access it digitally with a cell phone app.

Take advantage of this freedom! Just as we increase our physical exercise to grow a stronger body, we should increase our spiritual exercise in our study to grow a stronger faith.

In addition to the ability to freely read the Word, we also have the blessing of sound materials and lessons—again, both in book form and online! With a few clicks of a mouse or taps on my cell phone screen, I can access a large number of sermons to listen to while I drive in the car or take a walk.

Never before have we had such a grand opportunity to “increase our faith” as we do in the twenty-first century. Don’t squander these great blessings!

Memory (Copy into a notebook 5-10 times)

Luke 19:10, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Pray

Pray for God to increase your faith as you study His inspired Word.
