One of the common mistakes people make when they first come to faith in Jesus is to turn to others for affirmation. That is, a person looks to other Christians in order to strengthen his own faith. The problem is that doing this doesn’t strengthen faith – it simply transfers one’s faith from God to other people. The person’s faith in God is lost.
Better to have a weak faith in God than a strong faith in people – no matter who the people are. The reason for this, of course, is that God will never let you down while people can’t help letting you down.
If you feel your faith in Jesus is weak, keep looking to Him and listening for Him. He will strengthen your faith over time. Don’t trust in other people. God’s assignment to you is to love other people – not trust them. People are weak, just like you are.
If you feel that you must have a big church or a small group to nurture your faith, recognize that you’re building your house on sand…and when the flood comes, as it surely will, your house will crumble.
Walk with Jesus. Have faith in Him. He is enough. Actually, He’s more than enough.
