Romans 15:1-2 is one of my motivation passages that keep me wanting to help others grow in their faith.
The heart of these verses is that the stronger and more mature people in their faith should be helping those who are less mature in their faith to grow.
It doesn’t matter where we are along the spectrum. We might be a Christian with a basic knowledge of the Bible or a Bible college professor, or somewhere in between, we all have a part to play in helping people grow and mature in their faith.
This is a major reason why I trained to be a Pastor and I have my website PASSIONAustralia.org. My heart is for people to come to Christ and grow in their faith. I want people to become lifelong followers of Christ.
My hope is that everyone I know would do the following things…
- Come to know Jesus in a personal way and find peace with God.
- Do some basic discipleship training.
- Attend and serve in a their local church.
- Undertake at least a year of Bible college to mature in their faith.
When we do these four things we give ourselves the best chance to live the life God intended for us. To be in relationship with God, to be assured of our salvation, to know who we are in Christ, to be obedient to God’s commands and to serve Him all the days of our lives.
How about you? What passages motivate you to help people grow in their faith?
