Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Timothy 1:3-4 (KJV); As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
Faith, by its nature, does not minister questions, it edifies.
Some Christians have been Born Again for years but have no visible godly fruit in their lives even though they pray, fast and give to God diligently.
Many who observe them ask questions such as, “What is the use of all your praying, fasting and the money you take to Church?”
This is a typical example of a man’s faith ministering questions.
Such questions are sobering. When one who is asked such questions understands the importance of self-evaluation and soul-searching, he will abide in the presence of God until he receives an answer.
Your life should build faith in others not lead them to question what you believe. They should see how you fight and win tough situations and admire you for it; they should see how you prevailed when the storms of life threatened to crash you and celebrate this; they should see your success and constant progress and seek to understand how you believe in God and why the God you pray to never fails.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Faith, by its nature, does not minister questions, it edifies.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this knowledge. I thank You because my life bears the fruits of faith. I am a constant testimony of the great things that You do in and through men, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
