Living By Faith | Conclusion

Those who began their Christian walk by faith frequently abandon their reliance on the truth found in the Bible. They shift their focus off of Jesus and question God’s Word’s reliability. They frequently lose focus in pursuing the Lord, and some even give up on their first love. There are some people who fall back into carnality and indulge in living a life that is focused on the flesh. Some people strive to appease God with their good deeds and the things they accomplish in this life. Others adhere to legalism and try to earn God’s favor by performing religious

Living By Faith | Pt3

Without faith, it is impossible (not possible in any way)to please God; in fact, we cannot even begin to approach the Lord and establish a personal relationship with Him without it. Please note that this is not the same as saying that it is impossible to please God. Their faith characterizes the milieu in which a believer lives their life. We are referred to as “believers” due to the fact that we consistently place our faith, trust, and confidence in God. The Christian life starts with faith, and it is with faith that it continues all the way to the

Living By Faith | PT2

Because faith is the means by which we approach God and place our confidence in Him for our salvation, it is impossible to win God’s approval without faith. Because of God’s unfathomable generosity, He makes it possible for us to get closer to Him by providing the very thing we need to do so: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8–9). Faith is not something we earn; it is a gift from God. The faith

Living By Faith

INTRODUCTION Many times, faith is simply trusting in God despite one’s inability to see or comprehend everything taking place. Believing that God is loving, just, and completely sovereign and that He has a plan and purpose for each of our lives is necessary for this faith. When we trust and put our faith in God, we must submit our own will and wants to His, and we must work to align our lives with the purposes He has for us. This may require putting one’s trust in action and taking risks, even though the situation may be unsettling or ambiguous.

Calm the storm

Anyone who has lived on the face of the earth for any length of time may have experienced one challenge or another. Jesus Christ said “have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 Knowing this, we ought to take heart.  You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32 Oftentimes many allow themselves to be weighed down by the magnitude of the storm they see or the challenge facing them and forget the

MAINTAINING YOUR FAITH IN A SECULAR WORLD

Although we live in the world, we are not of the world (John 15:19). We are called to be the light of the world as God’s children. This means that we must show the world the right way to live in the midst of its depravity, darkness and godlessness. As ambassadors of Christ, representing heaven on earth can seem like an uphill task. It is not easy to stand for God particularly when God is being set aside in the systems of the world already. In the midst of the chaos and pressure to give in to the world’s ways,

The Faith that works

Faith is the currency used to exchange the things we don’t want for the things that we expect from God in this kingdom. If a man lacks faith, then he finds it impossible to walk with God. [Hebrews 11:6] Our walk with God is not only service to Him, this is of utmost importance, but there is also a place for our receiving from God. We do not only receive for ourselves the things that we want, but we also receive for friends, family and even those that we do not know, the things that we want released into their

YOUR MIRACLE IS AT THE DOOR

Miracles are always around us at every moment in life. I see miracles everyday just as it was in the beginning of the world. When God said “Let there be light” there has been light ever since and darkness has not been able to prevail over it. God created ADAM by the act of a superior miracle when He said, “let us create Man in our own image,” that is in the likeness of the Trinity; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. After all that God created, HE made human beings in His own image

Overcoming unbelief

Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God- Hebrews 3:12 According to the Bible verse above, an unbelieving heart is an evil heart. Why is unbelief categorized as evil? Romans 1:21-32 explained it all. No one values what he does not believe in. It is not possible to worship a ‘god’ you believe not. When men doubt God, they refuse to retain God in their knowledge. They begin to do things that contradict His words. Even when they know their acts are abominable, they persist because their heart is full of rebellion. Because God
