What kind of faith do I desire in 2022?
- A Fatal Faith (v 5, 12)
This is a faith that never survives at all. It is offered the Word but doesn’t receive it, take it in, or hold it fast.
- A Falling Away Faith (v 6, 13)
This is a faith that receives God’s Word, but doesn’t go deeper. It lacks roots and is caught off guard when trials come.
👉This often occurs when we mistake a life of faith for a life of ease.
- A Fragile Faith (v 7, 14)
This is a faith that is overpowered and choked out by the cares (negatives) and the pleasures (positives) of life.
👉 This often occurs when we feed and tend to the things of life more than the things of the Lord.
- A Firm Faith (v 8, 15)
This is a faith that flourishes. It listens to God’s Word and holds fast to it. It’s a faith that bears fruit in every season. It grows and yields a hundredfold.
Happy New Year, friends. Whatever this year holds – God is already there.
