“The good fight of faith 3”
1 Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
CONFESSION MEANS; GRK HOMOLOGEO – HOMO – SAME, LEGO,
TO SPEAK THE SAME THING.
YOUR FAITH CAN NEVER RISE ABOVE THE LEVEL OF YOUR CONFESSION.
REMEMBER THE CENTURION Matt 8:5-10
FAITH IS ALWAYS THE IGNITER
Romans 4:16 For this reason it is by faith, in order that it may be in accordance with grace, so that the promise will be guaranteed to all the descendants, not only to those who are of the Law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 (as it is written, “A father of many nations have I made you”) in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.
2 Cor 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,
THERE’S TWO INGREDIENTS INVOLVED IN THE SPIRIT OF FAITH.
- BELIEVE – THE ATTITUDE OF FAITH – FACE LIFE W AN ATTITUDE!
Rom 8:31 “WHAT SHALL WE SAY TO THESE…”
- SPEAK – THE LIFE OF PAUL
FAITH WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE SILENT.
PAUL ON THE SHIP… Acts 27
Acts 26 PAUL STOOD BEFORE KING AGRIPPA
26:1 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself: I think myself happy, king Agrippa
25 Festus hollered at him and said, Paul you’re crazy!
