FAITH





Luke 18:8b (NIV) When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?

Believing the Truth

Faith is believing in what is true. Faith has two elements: 1) being convinced of the truth, being certain of reality, having evidence of unseen things, and 2) believing, hoping in, embracing, seizing the truth.

 
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1 (NIV) Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Because Jesus is God, He lives forever. Before the world began, He lived with God, and He will reign forever with Him. In Book of John, Jesus is revealed in power and magnificence even before His resurrection.

Jesus offers eternal life to us. We are invited to begin living in a personal, eternal relationship with Him now. Although we must grow old and die, by trusting (and having faith in) Him we can have a new life that lasts forever.

Through God’s Holy Spirit we are drawn to Him in faith. We must know the Holy Spirit to understand all that Jesus taught. We can experience Jesus’ love and guidance as we allow the Holy Spirit to do his work in us.

We can be changed as the disciples were and have confidence that our bodies will one day be raised to live with Christ forever. The same power that raised Christ to life can give us the ability to follow Christ each day.
