“If you were to ever speak of “going deeper” in your faith, what would you mean?”
So then, what is faith? We know from Hebrews 11:1 that “…faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen”. Faith in what? For a Christian faith is different, it is not a “power or belief” or “positive thinking”. As a Christian there is an object to my faith, that object being the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without defining faith, we are lost without an object. There is no deep well from which to draw, simply the surface of emotions that we battle with on a daily basis.
So, what do I mean, when I say I want to go deeper in my faith? Simply put, I want to seek God more authentically (Jeremiah 29:13). I want to grow in that blessed hope and his soon second-coming and trust in the true promises and sovereignty of God (Matthew 24:29-21; Psalm 119:160; 2 Peter 3:9). I want to know Jesus deeply, from the wellspring of my heart (Provers 4:23 NIV). I want to go deeper than just the surface level!
So… what does “going deeper” in your faith mean to you?
