“How To Grow In Faith: Trust the Process”
Colossians 1:1–14
In Paul’s letter to the churches in the ancient city of Colossae, he gives thanks for their growth in faith. Paul uses an organic metaphor to describe this growth. Here, growth in faith is depicted as if faith were a kind of plant that has a natural tendency to grow. It’s as if, once we have the seed of faith in us, all we have to do is to be patient, to wait, and the power of the seed will do its work.
Pastor Ezekiel preaching.
