Faith and Trust

posted Nov 14, 2013, 9:11 AM by Tim Isbell
A friend of mine moved into Christian faith over the past few years. Recently he told me that he now accepts Christian faith, is developing a prayer life, and finds value in scripture even though he thinks he needs to read more of it. Then he asked for some coaching on how to have more faith.

I have heard this question a few times, so I shared with him my understanding that we can't simply force ourselves to have more faith. Rather, I've learned that faith is a gift from God.

To understand this concept, I make a distinction between trust and faith. To understand more about how a little bit of trust leads to faith, read Faith is a Gift.
