No Limits

You do not have to look far to know that we live in a world defined by limitations. We have speed limits, physical limits, relational limits, and emotional limits that shape our lives. This reality causes many to create self imposed spiritual limits as well. One of the areas we wrongly create spiritual limits is within our faith. Have you ever said, “I just don’t have enough faith”? Is there really any limit to the amount of faith we can possess?

Hebrews 11:1 says —1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see. The only limits placed on our faith are the limits we impose ourselves. I want to encourage you to be a person of total faith this week. Remove the limits!

Here are three different ways faith can play a part in our lives:

Focused Faith removes our distractions. When your faith is laser focused little else matters in life. In Philippians 4:8 Paul says —8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Focus your faith on these kinds of things and you will notice anything of lesser importance fades away. When our faith is not focused, we embrace distractions that limit the potential of our faith.
Crucible Faith renews or ruins our commitment to God. Everyone’s faith will be tested at many points in life. I call this the crucible of faith. How you react during those difficult times will determine if your faith is renewed or ruined. Some choose to run to God; others choose to run away from God.
Contagious Faith revives the faith of others. Like laughter, faith is contagious. Your faith or lack of faith will affect the others around you. When you choose to live with a “no limits” attitude towards your faith, others around you will as well spreading the love of God.

Do you need to focus your faith, embrace the crucible of faith, or share your faith? Whatever the case, remove the limits from your faith this week. If you want to learn more listen to the sermon I preached concerning the focused, crucible, and contagious faith of Josiah.
