Daily devotional: Faith that comes through Jesus

Scripture
By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.
Acts 3:16 NIV

Observation
There is power in the name of Jesus, and He is still living and active and moving in the lives of people on the earth. But we must have faith that comes through Him! It is amazing to think about the disparity between what we intellectually believe and our actual actions in real life. We must take hold of the faith that comes through Jesus, and live our lives congruently according to that faith!

Application
Don't settle for less than the life lived and changed by the power of God through complete faith that comes through Jesus. Be bold and trust that He is who He says He is! Walk with Him and serve Him accordingly. Live in such a way that when I get to the end of my life I will not regret any difference between my intellectual faith and the intentional actions that resulted in my life.

Prayer
Holy Father, I fear and respect You. And I also rejoice that You are living and active in and through the lives of those who love You and serve You. I submit completely to You. Please strengthen my faith which comes through You, Lord Jesus! Holy Spirit, help my life to be congruent with this faith. I love you!
