What is Undignified Faith? Webster’s Dictionary describes Undignified as being--not dignified. Faith as being--a powerful belief in something or someone. Trust in something or someone.
What I am talking about is Undignified Faith in the Lord. Faith without doubt. 100 percent Faith. So often we say we have faith, we give our problems to the Lord so he may fix them, but then we turn around and take our problems back from the Lord, because we worry. Now, we know that to worry is a sin. So, not only do we doubt what the Lord can and will do, but then we start to worry. And anytime, we take back our problems from God, we doubt him. We have doubt in our Faith. What we, and I say we, including myself, need, is Undignified Faith. We need to put all faith and trust in God, without any doubt. The Bible is our learning kit on how to get that Undignified Faith that we need.
Go to the book of Job. That whole book alone tells us how Job had Undignified Faith. This man lost everything. His children, his wealth, his health and almost his life. But through all that, he had Faith that God would bring him through. He had, Undignified Faith. He never doubted God. And because of his Undignified Faith, God restored his, health, and wealth with more than he had before.
Let’s go to the book of Daniel. Here we have three men, Sha’drach, Me’shach and Adedi’nego. These three men continued to Pray and have Undignified Faith to the God of all God’s. Lord of all Lord’s. And King of all Kings. When thrown into the furnace, they new that God would not let harm come to them. And if harm did come, they new that their God could have saved them if it was his will. They entered into the furnace without fear, but with Undignified Faith. When they came out of the furnace, there was not a mark on them nor the smell of smoke. Their Undignified Faith kept them from being harmed.
In the book of Genesis, we learn about a man named Joseph. A man that was loved by his father, but hated by his brothers. His brothers hated him so much that they wanted to harm him. They sold him to be a slave. Joseph went from slavery to jail. Through all of that he still had Undignified Faith. The Lord kept him. He not only got out of jail, but became Pharaoh’s second in command. This happened because of Josephs’ Undignified Faith.
These are just a few examples that are in the Bible to teach us how to have Undignified Faith in the Lord. The scriptures say, “ I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Philippians 4:13) If you say this, and truly believe it, then that is showing that you have Undignified Faith. When quoting scripture, you should believe what you are saying. To say, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” you must have Undignified Faith, that it is Christ who gives you strength to do anything. Not just strength through muscles. But strength in the mind, body and soul as well.
Look at the woman with the issue of blood. Jesus told her that her faith had made her whole. This woman had Undignified Faith. Her Undignified Faith, got her out of bed, dressed, strength to walk through the town, courage to face the smirks and looks given by the people. As well as the courage to touch Jesus. She was considered an unclean woman. She was not to come out of her house. But she had Faith without a doubt, that Jesus would and could heal her.
Do you want the Undignified Faith that the Lord wants us to have? Read the Bible. He tells us how to have it, all through his Book. It is time for us to get Undignified with our Faith in the Lord. Prove your faith to God.
