Today we have sound and fury but no Substance. Why? Our Faith is lacking. We want to believe but ask the Lord to help instead of helping ourselves. His Word tells us how to build up our Faith.
‘Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual, (reasonable), service. Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace that was given me, to every man who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think reasonably, as God has apportioned to each person a measure of faith.
‘We have the measure of Faith to believe, how do we build on it?
‘Beloved, while I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I was constrained to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.’
We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
