Faith

  • Faith is a gift of God’s Spirit, and without it, it is impossible to please God.
  • Faith is given by measure to those of God’s choosing
  • God has instructed His children that faith must be exercised and that His children are to “walk by it.”
  • Even the demons believe, yet simply believing is not enough, faith without works is dead.
  • It is not our faith, but the faith of Jesus Christ which justifies us.
  • The just are to live by faith.
  • Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by God’s word.
  • That faith is expressed by actions of love to God in obedience and yielding to God  and His way, or an empty faith can result.
