Advanced by FAITH.  There is not a single element of life that does not require some degree of FAITH.  Rather it be in your fellow man, your co-worker, your employee, your wife and children, and certainly we must have FAITH in Our Lord God. How does that happen?   Trust…Peter walked on water, at least at first, then his “trust” subsided and he began to sink.  You of little faith; why did you doubt?  Matthew 14: 25-31 – Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake.  When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.  But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I.  Don’t be afraid.”  “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”  “Come,” he said.  Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”  Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”  We can, therefore, advance through all paths taken in life…. By FAITH in Our Lord Jesus Christ.  God gives us the gift of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us!” We receive this gift by faith alone. Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace you are saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves; it is God’s gift-not from works, so that no one can boast.”  Faith is a decision of your heart demonstrated by life’s action. We can increase our FAITH by reading God’s word (the Bible), by Heeding His word, and by Testing His word.  If we fail to heed what we’re reading and ignore what God is telling us, then our faith will grow stagnant. In order to grow and increase our faith, we need to use that “measure” of faith God gives to everyone and build on it. This then, while biblically supported, is not just a religious position, rather it applies to all segments of life.….business, personal, social, and spiritual. Having “faith, and trust” in co-workers, employers, friends, and family, will move you ahead in live to all those things that God has planned for you. Blessings… cjlb… 6/11/14
