How to Get the Christian's Power of Attorney

1. Believe the gospel that everything it teaches is for you. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

2. Repent and turn to God and renounce all sin and wrong doing. (Acts 26:18)

3. Obey the gospel and seek for the enduement of power from on high. (Luke 11:13; 24:49; Acts 1:4-15, 2:38-39; 5:32)

A lack of faith may also be the result of not seeking God according to the Bible.  A person may desire faith in God but not according to the teachings of the Word of God.  It is reported that the noted evangelist of our times frequently prayed that God would increase his faith until one day they came face to face with Romans 10:17 which …
