It has been observed without controversy that most Christians do not worship God in faith. Hebrews 11:6. This is the paramount reason why so many Christians why so many Christians are running from pillar to post looking for someone to fast and pray for them.
A lot of Christians do not even know that if request from God is not done with faith, they may not receive an answer, why? Because lack of faith is doubt and doubt causes one to be double minded. James 1:6-8.
Many Christians are ignorant of what faith is even all about. Hosea 4:6.
DEFINITION OF FAITH
- Faith is to be sure that what we prayed and hoped for will come to pass. Hebrews 11:1
- Faith is an undisputable believe in the existence of God and that He rewards those that seek Him diligently. Hebrews 11:6
- No other action pleased God like faith because where and whenever faith is in generation, there will definitely be evidence and proof that faith is in action. James 2:14-17
- When you are acting by faith, you do not allow what you see or feel affect you, because sight is the language of the eyes, feelings are the language of the body, so the must be ignored for faith to be in action 2nd Corinthians 4:18 and 2nd Corinthians 5:7.
HOW DOES FAITH COME?
- Faith comes by hearing, not just any thing but by the word of God Romans10:17.
- So a Christian is expected to reject any thing he hears which is contrary to the word of God. Psalm 1:1-3, Joshua 1:8, Proverbs 21:16 and 1st John 4:1.
- Faith comes through hearing the sermons, Biblical lessons such as this one and faith can also come when the Holy Spirit speaks to you while meditating o the scriptures. Psalm 119:130.
- For your faith to continue to rise and fall, you must be selective in your associations because your friends / associations have the power to influence you. Psalm 1:1-3, Proverbs 13:20 and 1st Corinthians 15:33.
