EXPLORING FAITH BY GOD’S WORD [3]


 

Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Faith continued: Gal.2:20—-I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Saints are to live by faith in Christ!

Romans 11:20; 2 Cor.1:24— Saints stand by faith!

Romans 4:12; 2 Cor.5:7— We are to walk with steps of faith!

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. ~Author Unknown
Faith continued: Matt.21:22; James 1:6—

James 1:6 (New King James Version)
6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

Faith is necessary in prayers being answered!

John 10:26-27— Those without faith are without Christ!

1 John 5:1– Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. Faith is evidence of new life in Christ! Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ~Martin Luther King Jr

John 10:25 ; 12:37 ; Acts 19:9 ; 2 Thessalonians 3:2—- Unbelievers do not have this great thing called faith, only those who are walking in the light of God’s word!

Faith is illustrated as:

*A shield

Ephesians 6:16

*A breastplate

1 Thessalonians 5:8

This concludes our brief look at faith I trust you have enjoyed and have a little more faith!
Romans 14:22-23 (New King James Version)

22 Do you have faith?[a] Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves. 23 But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not eat from faith; for whatever is not from faith is sin.[b]

All things should be done in faith!

1 Peter 1:6,7— Our faith is often tested by affliction!

James 1:3 (New King James Version)

3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

At the point where hope would otherwise become hopelessness, it becomes faith. ~Robert Brault
