Faith Is Measurable

October 17, 2017

"When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel" (Matt. 8:10).

A centurion came to Jesus on behalf of his sick servant. When Jesus said, "I will come and heal him" (Matt. 8:7), the centurion answered, "speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed" (v. 8). Jesus said to him, "Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee" (v. 13). Turning to His disciples, Jesus said, "I have not found so GREAT faith, no, not in Israel" (v. 10).

Therefore, it is possible for a person to develop great faith.

On the other hand, an example of little faith is seen when Peter began to sink after having walked on the water. Jesus chided Peter, saying, "O thou of LITTLE faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?" (Matt. 14:31).

If faith can be great, and faith can be little, then faith is measurable!

Here are some scriptures that prove faith is measurable:

Growing faith (2 Thess. 1:3)
Weak faith (Rom. 4:19)
Strong faith (Rom. 4:20)
Rich faith (James 2:5)
Full of faith (Acts 6:5)
Perfect faith (James 2:22)
Unfeigned faith (1 Tim. 1:5)
Shipwrecked faith (1 Tim. 1:19)
Overcoming faith (1 John 5:4).

Confession: My faith is growing. My faith is measuring up to a great faith, strong faith, rich faith, perfect faith, unfeigned faith, overcoming faith; I am full of faith!
