Faith

Faith is what we believe in even if we cannot see it. We believe that there is air we breathe though we can’t see it, however we feel it. Faith is also trusting to someone else. You have faith with your friends, family and even spouse. We also believe in God, we can’t see Him but we believe He exists.

    Wisdom is the key for us to achieve faith. We have to trust the Lord for everything we do. We all know that He will never let us do the things if He knows we can’t. Believing in what God says is more real than what we see. We believe that through God’s word, He made the earth, the universe the things that we see.

    Why can’t God give us any kind of physical evidence of his existence? It is only because God is offering eternal life but only if we take Him on faith. Actually, there is some proof or evidences that God truly exists. Floods, day and night, the miracle life of a baby inside the mother’s womb; these are just some examples that God exists. If we only believe in Him, we will understand the true meaning of faith and how we give faith to our friends and families, and faith in God. Below our verses about faith.

 

SUBSTANCE OF FAITH

 

Hebrews 11:6 ESV

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Hebrews 11:1 ESV

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1-40 ESV

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. …

Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. …

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.

James 2:14-26 ESV

If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
