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

We are more valuable to God than grass, and He "clothes" the grass.  Surely, He will take care of our needs too!

"Wherefore if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?"

Matthew 6:30

"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."

When my faith is tried, and I respond correctly to it, the spiritual exercise brings about my patience.

"Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience."

James 1:3

Living by faith pleases God.  It shows God I trust Him with my very life.

"But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

Hebrews 11:6

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

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

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
