Faith

Faith, what it is, and how it should affect the believer's life.

Holding on to the truth by faith leads to a secure life.  Throwing away faith leads to a shipwrecked life.  I must be careful what I hold on to and what I let go of.

"Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck."

1 Timothy 1:19

Be faithful.  Be an encourager of other believer's faith.

"And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellow-laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith."

Discipleship is establishing believers in the faith.  The roots go deep!  Jesus is my anchor point.

"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:  Rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."

Colossians 2:6-7

Salvation is by grace through faith plus nothing.  I can't brag about it because I couldn't do anything to get it except to trust Christ.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Ephesians 2:8-9

September 11, 2019

Keeping God's Law perfectly is impossible!  And trying to keep the Law for salvation is also impossible!  Salvation is only possible through faith in His Son.

"Where is boasting then?  It is excluded.  By what law? of works?  Nay: but by the law of faith.  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."

Romans 3:27-28

“Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the Cross!”

"Beloved when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."

Jude 1:3

“Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the Cross!”

"Beloved when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."

Jude 1:3

Faith that is tried by fire is a strong faith that will stand the test of time.

"That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ."

1 Peter 1:7
