The Bible clearly states in Romans (10:13)that faith comes by hearing the word of God. Christian men that want to grow their faith will guard the ideas and information that they allow into their spirit. Sure you can get pumped up and mentally charged from listening to motivational speakers and a variety of products aimed at helping your emotional growth but only the word of God can build your faith.
In his letter to the Philippians, Paul reminds us that the thoughts we allow our minds to focus on are important too. We have to bring every thought into captivity.
Christians should think about things that are lovely, true and of good report.This also applies to the kind of music, movies and the other messages that you listen to.
Don't get caught up in the vicious cycle of following deceptive practices and philosophies that are based on human tradition and principles rather than the word of God. Saturate your mind with the word instead.
3 Faith Building Keys
There are three ways that Christian men can build their faith and be encouraged by the Lord. First and foremost there is preaching, then there's prayer and of course praise. It's during these faith building activities that the inspired word of God can flow into the heart of Christians.
Growing your faith is important for you to be able to access the many benefits of our relationship with God. Love and power are two of the most important benefits made available under the covenant between God and man. One of the reasons that faith is vital to our Christian experience is that without faith it is impossible to please God.
