Luke 18:8 when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”
MEN OF OLD GAINED APPROVAL BY FAITH (Hebrews 11:2, 39).
Hebrews “Without faith it is impossible to please God”.
Ephesians 5:8 walk as children of Light 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
FAITH IS LIVING IN THE MIDST OF A MIRACLE, ON THE EDGE OF DISASTER.
ABRAHAMS FAITH WAS SO GREAT THAT WHILE HE LIVED IN THE LAND OF PROMISE HE MAINTAINED HIS FOCUSE ON THE CITY WHICH HAS FOUNDATIONS, WHOSE ARCHITECT AND BUILDER IS GOD (Hebrews 11:9-10).
PAUL URGED TIMOTHY TO “Fight the good fight of faith” (1 Timothy 6:12).
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS TO BE LIVED BY FAITH. IT IS A COMMAND NOT AN OPTION.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and 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 up for me.
Hebrews 10:38 But My righteous one shall live by faith; And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
FAITH, THOUGH IT WORKS THE SAME IN EVERY AREA MUST BE DEVELOPED IN EVERY AREA.
Romans 12:3 SAY’S, GOD HAS GIVEN TO EVERY MAN A MEASURE OF FAITH.
WHAT A MAN BEGINS TO DO WITH THAT MEASURE DETERMINES WHAT HE DOES AND HAS IN LIFE.
FAITH IS FOR NOW IN THIS LIFE. 1 Corinthians 13:13
“But Now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love”.
FAITH IS ABOUT EXPECTING SOMETHING GOOD BECAUSE WE ARE PERSUADED OF SOMETHING TRUE.
Romans 4:21 TELLS US THAT ABRAHAM WAS FULLY PERSUADED THAT GOD WAS ABLE TO DO WHAT HE PROMISED.
IF YOU ARE NOT PERSUADED YOU WILL SETTLE FOR LESS.
PROGRESS IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE ONLY TAKES PLACE BY FAITH.
NAS 2 Tim 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith;
A PERSON WILL HAVE IN THIS LIFE WHAT THEY BELIEVE GOD FOR. NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS.
FAITH IS THE INGREDIENT FOR EVERYTHING YOU WILL EVER WANT TO EXPERIENCE.
- FAITH IS BASED ON THE REVEALED WILL OF GOD
GOD’S WORD IS HIS WILL!
1 John 5:14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.
THE BIBLE IS CALLED THE WORD OF TRUTH 2 Tim 2:15
IN Romans 10:16 THE APOSTLE PAUL QUOTING FROM Isaiah 53:1 ASKS THE QUESTION THAT ISAIAH ASKED, “Lord, who has believed our report?”
Romans 10:17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ.
GOD’S COMMANDS, HIS WORDS, ARE ENABLINGS.
GOD’S WORD IS THE SPIRITUAL SUBSTANCE THAT ESTABLISHES THE HEART OF THE BELIEVER.
THE WORD OF GOD IS THE FACTORY FOR FAITH!
