Do you desire to build up your faith?  A believing Christian needs to build up his or her faith in order to survive or succeed as a Christian. However, this is a big challenge to many, not knowing how to do so. This article points you to how to build up your faith through Christ.

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God - Romans 10:17 (NKJV).

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth - John 1:1, 14 (NKJV).

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith - Hebrews 12:2a (NKJV).

Faith is a very important virtue a believing Christian must possess, because without it no man can please God (Hebrews 6:11). In fact, Christianity (the gospel of Christ) is summarized as "the faith." Our victory in Jesus is dependent on our ability to believe in Him and what He had done for our salvation and dominion on earth. The good news is that every child of God has a measure of faith (Romans 12:3). However, the level of dominion you exercise on earth at any time is determined by how much you have built your faith at that time.

But how do you build up your faith?

The word of God says that faith comes as we hear and understand the word of God (Romans 10:17). Also, the scriptures say that Jesus is the word of God. So, we can say that faith comes as we hear and understand Jesus. Hebrews 12:2a confirms this by telling us that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. Therefore your faith starts and ends with Christ.

Having a burning desire to know more about Jesus is a vital step in building up your faith. This will move you to search the scriptures, which will reveal Christ more and more to you. The more you believe in what Christ has done, and as such what He can do, the more your faith grows.

The books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John give account of Christ's walk on earth: His teachings, the miracles, signs and wonders that He performed. Then the Acts of the apostles recorded the acts of the apostles of Christ, who believed in Him and exercised their faith in His teachings, and  the Lord confirmed the word with signs and wonders following (Mark 16:20). A journey, with a desire to have an encounter, through these books will jack up your faith in God.

Now, note that every book in the bible has a lot to say about Jesus and so should be equally read along with the above books of the bible. However, the above books expose you to the Lord's teachings, miracles, signs and wonders and teach you how to exercise this acquired knowledge and get results.

In conclusion, without faith it is impossible to please God. Therefore, it is very important that you know, understand and believe in the author and finisher of your faith. Start today if you haven't and your future will be full of signs and wonders.
