Faith is Now

Increase our faith
was the plea; but
they misunderstood
the nature of faith
the faith of Abraham,
of true believers
Faith is now, in the moment
in the doing, the feet to the faith
not to save and use later
Faith is the action of the believer
showing the world their belief
their being the message,
the servant, the shepherd,
the herald, the apostle
the evangelist
out in the world
