How can we get the right foundation of our faith?
Foundation for our faith
In an episode of Growing In Prayer with James Aladiran, he talked about building the right foundation of our faith. He emphasized the importance of the foundation in building a building. Our building’s foundation should depend on what kind of building we’re building. A two-story building’s foundation is different than a five-story building’s foundation.
“The foundation of a building is absolutely crucial to the type of building that you’re going to build… The foundation is so important depending on the type of building you want to build. And when you think about this spiritually, what kind of person do you want to be in God? What kind of person do you want to be in the spirit,” James asked.
Growing in Prayer
Our faith’s foundation should be built on something stronger that could last for decades. It is crucial to building a foundation that would keep our passion burning for Jesus Christ.
“It’s not just about a moment of excitement that fizzles out, but it’s about consistency over a period of decades. And for that to be achieved, the foundation has to be right,” he noted.
For us to be well-founded in our faith, we should first know that our prayer is more than just asking God for things we need and desire. Our prayer is our way of communication with God, it’s two-way communication.
“People have this concept of prayer that’s all about just asking God for things. Now, obviously, that is not wrong, but the problem with that is it’s a wrong foundation to build on. Because that kind of foundation will not be able to sustain the passion for God for decades.”
