Our Measure Of Faith

Q. In Romans 12:3, it speaks of “the measure of Faith” God has given us.

My question is: do we all get the same “measure” of Faith, or are some of us given a bigger or smaller measure? Some of us are called to serve in areas where I would think they would need a very large measure of Faith.

A. We are all gifted with the faith to believe (Ephes 2:8-9).  We are instructed to make that faith grow, through the study of God’s word (Romans 10:17) and through living by faith not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7).   Doing these things will increase our faith.  Many people who seem to have stronger than average faith are like people who have stronger than average muscles.  They’ve both spent more time exercising what they were given.  Others are actually given extraordinary faith as a spiritual gift (1 Cor. 12:9) to strengthen them for some special work.

But we could all have the faith to do great things for the Lord, if only we spent more time exercising it. (Matt. 21:21-22)
