Jesus is praying for us, that our faith fails not. Our faith is a gift from God, but we must contend for the faith which was delivered to us by hearing the word, having faith imparted through the laying on of hands, praying in your heavenly language and imitating the faith of Jesus and the heroes of faith. We are the master of our own faith and can increase (grow) and strengthen our faith through these methods until we are eventually able to also strengthen the faith of those around us. Do not stagger at the extent of the promises of God! – Sermon preached on 11 September 2016
