“Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.” James 2:18b
Hebrews 11:1 (ESV) says, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of
things not seen.” Being stretched is an exercise of faith. Being stretched is the work we do to show the faith we have. By stretching we demonstrate that we have a faith we believe will take us to extraordinary places. For if we do not live in such a way as to be extraordinary, do we have faith at all? Do you think those who are observing you believe what you were living?
Being stretched can become your lifestyle. In fact, being stretched should be your lifestyle. After all, by demonstrating how you are stretched, and by how you are growing will also be the standard of which those who are observing, and following and being disciple by you will measure themselves.
