We need more faith don’t we? But do we know how faith is increased? It is increased when we simply do our duties, preparing our master a meal and then serve him supper before we can eat ourselves.
But we think faith is about us don’t we? We think we deserve it, because we’ve come from the field, therefore we should sit down and eat or obtain promises. Faith isn’t increased to us that way my friend, but is increased because you do as you’re supposed to do.
"So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say, 'We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do.'" Luke 17:10.
So then faith comes by hearing the word of God and obeying it.
Ten men with leprosy stood at a distance crying out, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" Jesus said to them, "Go show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were cleansed of their leprosy. One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, fell to the ground at Jesus' feet, thanking him for what he had done.
Then Jesus asked "Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?" And He said to him, "Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well" Luke 17:17-19.
Where was the faith there? He obeyed, and when he saw that he was healed, he came back to Jesus, to thank Him and give God the glory for what he had done.
You’re probably saying increase my faith Lord! Walk in obedience my friend and do as you’re supposed to do.
