- It’s not the amount of faith we have, but rather what our faith is in.
- Jesus invites us into having faith in his power and his work on the cross, not in our own striving and effort.
- We will all experience seasons where we feel doubt in our faith and faith in our doubt. Remember that sometimes the moments of the deepest doubt can lead to moments of soaring faith.
Can you think of moment where you had a lot of doubt, but stepped out in faith anyway? Share the story!
Do you find it reassuring that our faith is in Jesus, and not in ourselves? Why do you think God would design salvation this way?
Why do you think it’s so easy to fall out of trusting Jesus and back into trusting ourselves? What are some ways you can remain in a space of trusting Jesus and not your own efforts?
Spend as much as time you need in prayer. Ask God to reveal the ways you may have slipped into trusting your own efforts and strivings. Pray that he would reignite your heart with a love of the Gospel and a humility to accept the work that Jesus did on the cross for you. Remember, Jesus died for your pride, your doubts, and all your sin. We didn’t deserve it, and we never can. What a beautiful truth!
