All Christians want to, or should want to, grow in their religion. Those who have devoted their life to Christ, on the other hand, have realised that success does not come from our own human efforts; we inevitably fail. "What makes you greater than anyone else?" asks First Corinthians 4:7. What have you that God hasn't given you? And since all you have comes from God, why brag as if you did something on your own?" We are left to our own resources without God, which torment us with pride, stubbornness, indifference, insensitivity, and failure. God is the only one we can rely on to never let us down (Hebrews 13:5).
To begin our path of faith with God, we must immerse ourselves in His Word (Romans 10:17; 1 Peter 2:2). We need to learn about His love, justice, mercy, and plan. We must establish a relationship with Him in order to know Him intimately via His Son, Jesus Christ (John 17:3). We should request that He show Himself to us and change us. According to the Bible, if we seek God, we will find Him (Matthew 7:7). And if we let Him, He will change us into new persons capable of knowing His will (Romans 12:2). We must be willing to die to our old selves and let go of the pride and selfishness that have kept us far from Him for so long. As God transforms us, we will learn to cultivate the fruit of the Holy Spirit, who resides in all Christians (Galatians 5:22-23; John 14:17). We will come to rely in Him as we walk in the Spirit, allowing Him to control our life. "Allow your roots to go down into him and receive sustenance from him, so that you may grow in faith, robust and vigorous in the truth you were taught." Allow your hearts to overflow with gratitude for all he has done" (Colossians 2:7).
If our faith in God is to increase, we must learn to step out in faith, leaving our comfort zone and accepting risks. We can be free to act out God's will regardless of the consequences if we believe that God will sustain us for that day. Whenever we are confronted with temptations, God will always offer a way out so that we are not overtaken (1 Corinthians 10:13). We must look for that path out and give thanks to God when we discover it. According to First Peter 1:7, He will use difficulties to test our faith and strengthen us as Christians; we will be given much glory if we can remain firm and not waver. "However, faith is gained by hearing this proclamation of good news — the Good News about Christ" (Romans 10:17).
