As the new year approaches, we usually reflect on this year and how next year can be better. More faith. I need more faith. More faith will change things in this coming new year. This might sound like a reasonable thought but the living Word says something different.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth IN me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith OF the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Gal 2:20 We have the faith OF the Son of God and Romans 12:3 tells us that God has given to each one of us THE measure of faith. His measure is the perfect amount and the same for all of us, it’s THE measure.

Gal 2:20 also says that He lives IN us! Check out John 14:20 “In that day you will know that just as I am in my Father, you are IN me and I am IN you!” Picture 4 circles with the one fitting into the other. The outer circle is the Father, then Jesus in the Father, then us in Jesus, and the Spirit in us!

So, we have the faith OF the Son of God, we have THE measure (perfect amount) of faith and He lives IN us and we IN Him! BUT, how do we really know all this is true and for us? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. (Rom 10:17) The Word is truly alive, active and powerful, (Heb 4:12) so read it and discover your faith.

2017 is going to be a great year!
