1 Samuel 17:50–51 KJV 1900
So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David. Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.
50 Yasari Daaud euTaa ghuyenno ra euTaa dungaale tyas Pilasti-maathi bijayi bhae, ra tyas Palistilaai prahaar garera tyas-laai bhaare; Tara Daaudko haatmaa kunai tarawaar thiena. 51 Yassaile Daaud dagure, tyas Palisti-maathi ubhie ra tyasko tarawaar samaatera tyasko myaan-baaTa thute ra tyas-laai maare, ani tasaile tyasko Taauko kaaTe. Ani jaba Palistiharule aaphno laDaakulaai mareko dekhe, taba tiniharu bhage.

David acted in faith
He came to battle against Goliath
The stone was thrown
Goliath fell to the ground
But there was more
The victory was not finished
All the other soldiers saw that Goliath fell
But there was more.
But they did not see that he was dead for sure
David had to show them God’s victory
He should cut off Goliath’s head
But he didn’t have a sword!
He needed to take Goliath’s sword [Goliathko tarawaar lineko] Daaudlaai kaancho thiyo
He had to come close to this big strong warrior(yoddhaa)
This was a scary thing for David!
Many of us would say: “My work is done”
I acted in faith
I prepared
I came to battle
I threw the stone
Goliath is on the ground
That is enough
But there was another step of faith
There was more work for David
He should show Goliath’s death
To the enemy
To his own people
This is like the christian life
Our new life in Christ begins with a big step of faith
Putting our trust and faith in Christ
But this is just the first step!
This is not the end
The battle is not over
God’s will is not for us to stop.
Romans 1:17 KJV 1900
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
17 Kinaki yasaimaa biswaas-dekhi biswaas-samma Parameswarko dharmikataa prakaT bhaeko chha, jasari lekhieko chha: ‘Dharmi jana biswaas-duaaraa jiunechha.’
We should live by faith!
Not just one step - many steps
Every day, every hour, every minute
God wants us to continually(nirantar) grow in faith
Grow in Christ
Philippians 1:6 KJV 1900
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
6 Ra yas kuraamaa ma nischit chhu - jasle timiharumaa euTaa asal kaam suru garnubhaeko chha, uhaale Yeshu KhrishTko din-samma tyo puraa garnu-hunechha.
Yes, our salvation requires faith
But every day requires faith
Faith for obedience
Faith for having the right attitude and spirit
Faith for work
Faith for sharing the gospel
Faith for prayer
Faith for spending money
2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV 1900
(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
7 Kinaki haami rupa dekhera hoina, tara biswaas-duaaraa hi’dchhaau.
When our faith grows weak, we fall
Disobedience comes by lack of faith
Sin comes by lack of faith
Anger comes by lack of faith
Bitterness, greed
It all starts with a lack of faith
So how do we increase our faith?
Romans 10:17 KJV 1900
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
2 Corinthians 4:16–18 KJV 1900
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
1 Thessalonians 1:3 KJV 1900
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;
Yaskaaran biswaas sunaai-duaaraa aau’chha, ra sunaai-chaahi’ Parameswarko bachan-duaaraa.
Simple - read God’s word
Philippians 1:6 KJV 1900
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
Every day
Walk in it
Swim in it
Be baptized in it
Let it be always in your mind
Your faith will grow.
We are in a spiritual battle
We are fighting against sin and the devil every day
We cannot stop fighting
We should live by faith continuously!
