What does it mean?
It means not every man you see has the right kind of faith, the God kind, or our kind of faith, that our Saviour Jesus Christ gives.
Do you want more of this faith, the God kind of faith?
Then Jesus should be your source;
- Obtain the like precious faith; learn to know him even better, and as you know him better, he will give you everything you need for living, godliness, goodness, his own character, glory and virtue, and all the other great and wonderful blessings he promised for you.
- You need only to pay close attention to the written word of God. Yes, you heard me right - only the written word of God, "For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect" Mark 13:22. Those beware! But what the prophets of old said came true, and so will what the apostles have written. What is written is like light shining into your hearts, their words help you to have faith, and understand many things that otherwise would be dark and difficult. But when you consider the wonderful truth of the gospel, then light will dawn in your soul and Christ will shine in your heart, and your faith will grow.
"And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ" 2 Peter 1:5-8
You see my friend, you need more than just faith to receive all the other blessings God promised. James 2:17 says, "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."
You must also work hard to be good, to know God better, and to discover what he wants you to do. "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" 2 Peter 1:10-11. Add to your faith virtue!
