Faith is depending of the reality of thins being hoped for, being convinced of those very unseen things.
The Focus of Faith
Many times we make a statement such as “my faith is weak.”
The biblical clarification is that the focus of faith is divine not human. We find the answer to the puzzle if “faith as a grain of mustard seed can move mountains.”
Faith is depending of the reality of things hoped for, being convinced of those very unseen things because they are based on specific truth.
The Increase of Faith.
The actual nature of increase is not in amount but in duration.
