這是這個禮拜在小組裡所分享的主題, 錄的品質不是太好, 可能是因為設備不太高級的關係吧, 嘗試看看而已, 真是抱歉抱歉偶. 要詳細討論信心這個主題實在會需要一整個系列, 短短一個小組的時間只能把介紹一些最基本的原則, 而且最近有點小忙, 準備時並沒有想像中多的時間來好好整理. 雖然如此, 但最重要的部分都簡單說明了, 雖然簡單, 卻很重要, 因為所有屬靈成長最重要的都是根基. 越大的根基才能在上面蓋越高大的建築, 越深穩的基礎, 以後遇到風吹雨淋才不會倒塌. 到一個程度, 甚至當屬靈的921來臨時, 都能夠站立的穩.
簡單說明信心是什麼, 信心從哪裡來, 如何使我們對神的信心能成長, 每個人都能有偉大的信心嗎等等? 內容大概40分鐘, 我把它切成三段放, 單一檔案就比較小(我轉成mp3了). 是用中文講的, 偶爾參了一些英文. 抱歉下面的大綱只有英文的, 因為小組裡不是每個人都看的懂中文. 大綱後半段的一些要點沒時間講, 本來就打算知道不會有時間講了, 就用看的, 自己多翻翻點經文囉!
願神祝福大家都能成為神末日聖戰的勇士, 在一個懷疑不信的世代, 爲神作美好無比信德的見證.

How We Can Grow Our Faith in God
– What is faith? What is your understanding of faith? Where does faith originate?
Heb 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Heb 12:2 “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” (Greek doesn’t have “our”)
Act 3:16 “And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.”
Faith is something real, spiritually tangible, and not just a mental knowledge, a concept or emotional feeling.
– Where does faith come from? What is the foundation of faith?
(Rom 10:17) “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Real faith is not based on circumstances or personal feelings.
– Does faith have levels? (Rom 10:17; different adjectives Matt 8:10; Mk 4:40; 2 Thes 1:3)
Faith is like a seed, it can grow from one level to another, bigger and bigger.
– How do we grow in faith through Rom 10:17? (“rhema” ρημα Vs. “logos” λόγος)
We grow through meditating, confessing, and declaring the Word of God constantly.
Rom 10:8-10 “But what does it say? “The word (rhema) is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Faith must be in our hearts, that’s why just having mental knowledge of the Bible in our head does not produce faith, and it’s by confessing the Word of God that the Word is dropped down into our hearts and become a part of our spirits. Then we’ll not just have knowledge, but we’ll have revelations.
Old Testament Scriptures: Psalms 1:2-3
“But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates (Hagah) day and night. He shall be like a tree planted (the Word like seeds) by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”
“Hagah”  הגה
1) to moan, growl, utter, muse, mutter, meditate, devise, plot, speak (Explain Jewish Tradition)
1a) (Qal)  1a1) to roar, growl, groan; 1a2) to utter, speak 1a3) to meditate, devise, muse, imagine;
1b) (Poal) to utter;
1c) (Hiphil) to mutter
Jesus’ first 30 years, not much to say???
Luke 2; Jesus was building Himself up in the Word of God. So when he grew up, and the toughest wilderness came, see how He dealt with it.
Matt 4:4 “But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word (rhema) that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” Jesus spoke the written word; Jesus compared the Word with food, when we grow in the Word, we grow in faith.
– Don’t depend on feelings (2 Cor 5:7) but on the Word; the Bible is very precious, people have died over the centuries for translating the Bible.
– Spend more time meditating on the Word than acquiring Bible knowledge.
– Faith works by love (Gal 5:6; 1 Cor 13); faith and love are the antidotes of fear.
– It takes time to grow in faith; the Word of God is like a seed (Luk8; Mk4; Matt13, “logos” here, brings forth fruit with patience).
– Real faith will produce actions and results (Jam 2:17).
– We need to build our faith to prepare for tough times, and tough times will come, and then our faith will please God (Heb 11:6).
– Rest in the faith of Jesus, for He is the author and finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2). In the original Greek, it says “the author and finisher of faith.” This means we have the faith of God, so rest in it, don’t struggle to try to get faith, but rest and yield to His Word to receive faith.
Practice Philip 4:4-8 (Personalize the Scriptures; use index cards; read out verses when reading the Bible; post Bible verses around like OT Mosaic laws etc.)
Faith is from God, something that’s spiritually real. We receive faith from the Word of God through meditating and confessing it regularly. Our growth in faith will sustain us in the most severe temptations and difficulties of this life. It’ll help us grow spiritually, live a consistent and balanced Christian life, and it’ll help us to believe God for greater and greater miracles as they’ll require more faith.
Since we’re only in our twenties, we still have a long way to go. The building of our faith will not only help us remain passionate for His name year after year, but we’ll just grow stronger and stronger in God. The Word of God will renew us to be living testimonies to the world that Christians are the most courageous and loving people in a generation full of doubts and unbelief.

    Hi Grace:
    我在一個叫Living Hope的白人小教會聚會(加拿大). 大部份是白人, 但有一個華人牧師和一些華人(我的小組目前成員都是華人). 我最早是在靈糧堂信主的, 後來才跟我媽來到Living Hope的.
    聽你說來, 神好像在帶領你在信心方面上的操練, 祝福你成為大有信心的器皿, 加油!
